EDTC 682 - THE WONDER OF DISCOVERY: SCIENCE, MATH AND THE ARTS
This course is proposed to integrate Science and Mathematics instruction with the Arts and Humanities. The artist and the scientist can be seen as living parallel lives, though they express themselves through different media. "The artist asks questions about the ways in which the world can be interpreted and re-created." (Tolley, 1993). Both are investigators on a mission to explore or answer questions. As participants in this inquiry-based course, we will explore the connections between the arts and sciences through hands-on activities, a variety of readings and field trips. Attention will be given to the theoretical frameworks, which support our practices. The use of technology as a connecting tool between these areas of inquiry will be addressed. The course will capitalize on the multicultural and multilingual contexts of our classrooms. We will look at how learning with and through the arts expands appeal of science to a greater variety of diverse learners. Participants will work in groups to create an integrated unit, which they will be able to implement in their own classrooms.

EDTC 684 - SCIENCE AND HUMAN VALUES
Science is rarely presented as a part of history, or in an historical context. It is often portrayed as something rigid and inflexible. We think of science as a product of the minds of very special people, the scientists, who think about the world in ways divorced from the social and historical context of the time in which they live and work. Science is often blamed for their controversial discoveries (and their bi-products) which are misused by society, such as nuclear energy, smart bombs, chemical wastes, and virulent microorganisms. Conversely they are praised by those discoveries such as bionic hearts, life-saving medicines, monoclonal antibodies, and gigabyte cyber systems. During this semester we will critically evaluate such issues through the societal context in which science operates.
