This one-day workshop is a follow-up to the Cutting Edge workshop Developing Student Understanding of Complex Systems in the Geosciences held in April 2010 at Carleton College. It is designed for instructors who are interested in incorporating numerical modeling exercises into their courses in order to:

Workshop Goals

Workshop activities will include presentations, discussions, and opportunities to construct and experiment with simple numerical models in STELLA.

Modeling exercises produced at the workshop will be compiled into a collection to be housed on the Science Education Resource Center (SERC) website at Carleton College, from which they will be available to the entire Geoscience education community.

Dates

The workshop will be held on December 12, 2010 from 9:00 – 5:30. Participants must attend the entire workshop.

This workshop is open to undergraduate and graduate faculty. We encourage participants representing a wide range of experiences, educational environments, and specialties. The workshop is limited to 25 participants.

Registration

The workshop is limited to the first 25 participants who register. Registrants who do not also submit a modeling exercise idea and pay the registration fee by December 1 may forfeit their place if there is a waiting list.

  1. Complete the registration form, which will help us tailor the workshop to the background and expectations of the audience. The registration deadline is November 22, 2010.
