Talk looks at learning outside the classroom

Written by 

Dr. Karen Kandl, associate director at the Highlands Biological Station, will speak on “Biodiversity of the Southern Appalachians: Learning outside of the classroom” at 7 p.m. on Aug. 23.

Kandl has extensive experience teaching outside of the classroom and believes that people learn best when they actively explore, discuss and construct concepts, relationships, and explanations that involve relevant problems and projects. She will discuss examples of place-based learning at the biological station, and how teachers can use these methods with students of all ages.

The Aug. 23 discussion is part of the regular Zahner Conservation Lectures that take place very Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Highlands Nature Center. Free and open to the public.
