Professors at institutions of higher education have chosen to use the NSTA Learning Center as their online textbook resulting in thousands of pre-service teachers each year engaging with NSTA’s digital assets to enhance their content and pedagogical knowledge. In the Learning Center pre-service teachers:

  • Build a library of resources to enhance their content and pedagogical knowledge
  • Converse online with classmates and other classroom teachers
  • Upload their original work to their library for future use or documentation
  • Create and share collections of resources with classmates and other Learning Center users
  • Establish a professional persona and experience the benefits of online professional learning

How does it work?

When you choose to use the Learning Center as your online textbook, your students pay a nominal fee to purchase a class bundle, composed of 1-year NSTA membership and a NSTA Learning Center subscription. While the subscription is active, students can add most resources in the Learning Center to their library for free. All resources added to the library, stay in the library forever (exception: NSTA SciPacks, which expire after 1 year).

This web seminar is designed for professors who teach science pre-service teachers at colleges and universities. All participants will receive a certificate of participation and 100 Learning Center activity points for attending and completing the post-program evaluation. An archive and presentation slides will be available at the end of the program.
