Research supports several practices in science education that "work", including active learning, tying new knowledge to prior knowledge, and recommendations from the NSF Vision and Change report for Biology Education. Participants will describe evidence-based science education practice, with examples, then will discuss how to incorporate these practices in online science communication. If the participants wish, we can discuss whether MOOCs are opportunities for science outreach.
