Training Students to Conduct Outreach in an Informal Science Learning Environment
Laura Wagner (The Ohio State University, USA), Leslie C. Moore (The Ohio State University, USA), and Kathryn Campbell-Kibler (The Ohio State University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-4966-7.ch010
This chapter reviews a science outreach training course designed for the Language Sciences Research Lab, a working research facility embedded inside of the Center of Science and Industry (COSI). The course integrates training in informal science education theory, background in a specific science area (language science) and extensive hands-on work at COSI where students engage museum visitors in interactive language-focused activities. Key components of the course are described and a formal evaluation of the course outcomes is reported. The authors discuss how the course enhances an existing partnership between COSI and Ohio State University, as well as ways in which its core elements have been adapted to other fields.
