Montana State University’s online courses for science teachers are now open for registration. The courses are all part of MSU’s National Teachers Enhancement Network. Most courses start Sept. 11, but some start later in the semester.
Fall 2017 graduate-level courses include 14 offerings in microbiology; physics; biology; earth science; land resources and environmental science; and education, curriculum and instruction. Several non-credit courses also are offered, including forensic science, art and literacy in the science classroom, and a course on best practices for teaching online.
Several popular courses are returning, including Understanding Climate Change (ERTH 591), Microbial Ecology (MB 542) and The Principles of Soil Science (LRES 591).
The courses are open to all teachers and informal educators. Participants can take courses for professional development or consider an online graduate certificate or master’s degree. The courses are all part of MSU’s National Teachers Enhancement Network, often called NTEN, which has reached more than 25,000 science teachers in its 20-plus-year history.
