8:15 GENERAL SESSION: Key Note – Jen Forby – Boise State University
Join us at the 2017 Idaho Environmental Education Association Conference featuring:
Key Note: Stimulating Curiosity for the Unknown. Dr Jennifer Forbey
Preparing a workforce with the capacity to initiate innovative solutions to the challenges of today and tomorrow requires students to understand what we know about a range of disciplines as well as a fostering of curiosity about the unknown. My goal is to demonstrate that curiosity of the unknown should be a critical component of the education process and provide examples of how we can best stimulate that curiosity. Dr. Forbey is an Associate Professor in Biology at Boise State University. She works closely with Idaho teachers through IdahoWatch – a program that partners secondary teachers with researchers.
