Introduction Companies create education and training departments to support professional development goals of employees and external clients. Although the purpose for these education initiatives may seem obvious, defining the technologies to use when it comes to curricula can be rather obscure. The University of Public Health (UofPH), an organization established to provide high-quality learning opportunities through the delivery of timely and cost-effective learning products. The university supports the mission and strategic goals of the agency to meet the training and developmental needs of the division. The target audience for courses is students (investigators and analysts) and course development team (CAG) members.

Science teachers have placed a high value on “scientific” thinking in their classes for quite some time. Unfortunately in the not to recent past that meant cook book labs, scripted lessons and taught students a prescribed way to do the scientific method. This left little room for free thought, questions and independence on the part of the student. The American Association for the Advancement of Science reports that, science educators have worked to infuse scientific inquiry into the K–12 curriculum (1990). This may be true but the definition that science teachers’ use for inquiry has been evolving and developing since then.
The benefit of online classes’ flexibility is greatly outweighed by their high cost: the loss meaningful learning. Traditional classrooms are better sources of communication and knowledge that allow students to really absorb the material. One of the most prominent positives of traditional classrooms over online learning environments have is that they are much better for promoting communication between the professor and the students. In an online class, professors only know that students need help if the student directly asks them for clarification on material. In traditional classes, the unspoken communication of body language and facial expressions of students can give professors clues that their... ... middle of paper ... ...ceptions, behaviours and success online and face-to-face.
