New Online Self-Paced K-12 Health and Science Resources Class
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region (NN/LM SCR) is pleased to offer the following new online class in Moodle format: NLM’s Online Playground: K-12 Health and Science Resources from the National Library of Medicine.
This self-paced online class will open August 25, 2014 and remain open until September 12, 2014.. Cheryl Rowan, Consumer Health Coordinator, NN/LM SCR, will be the facilitator for the class.
This online course is designed to introduce the freely available K-12 resources from the National Library of Medicine. Resources will be focused on three broad subject areas: Basic Health Information, Environmental Health and Toxicology, and Genetics. Participants will become familiar with resources in each of these subject areas, with particular attention to resources which can be used to supplement content curricula, health and science programming, and/or provide homework help. Both websites and online exhibitions from the National Library of Medicine will be included. The intended audience for this class is K-12 librarians and science teachers, public librarians, and any other individuals who work with K-12 populations.
Participants may work at their own pace during this class but are expected to interact with other class participants in discussion forums and complete practice exercises and quizzes related to the resources covered.
Upon successful completion of this class, each participant will receive 3 hours of continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association.
Registration for this class is required: http://nnlm.gov/scr/training/register.html?schedule_id=3057
