wondering protocol

In wondering sessions, a "wondering" or issue of interest is raised and a "venture" or possible response to the wondering is discussed. This might involve a conceptual, methodological, or other kind of issue in science education that the individual is puzzled about and wishes to initiate a scholarly conversation. This venue pushes the boundaries of our own theoretical and methodological frameworks and explores ways to get out of our comfort zones. This is also a great space for teachers to share ideas for addressing issues about which they have been wondering. 

Structure for Each individual Presenter 

Each individual presenter will have a total of 30 minutes for their wondering presentation. The specific break down of this time is outlined below.
