Climate, Oceans, and Atmosphere
Thursday, November 17th
10:00 am PT | 11:00 am MT | 12:00 pm CT | 1:00 pm ET
Friday, October 28th
9:00 am PT | 10:00 am MT | 11:00 am CT | 12:00 pm ET
Presenters: Pete Berquist (Thomas Nelson Community College) and Benjamin Cuker (Hampton University)
This webinar is part of a series supporting teaching with InTeGrate principles, using InTeGrate-developed and curated materials as tools.
Resources, including presentation slides and the Screencast recording after the webinar
At the end of this webinar, participants will have:
- strategies to address renewable and non-renewable energy in terms of basic principles and societal implications
- teaching approaches for discussing the impact of energy consumption on climate, climate change in the geologic record and climate change due to carbon in the present-day
- greater familiarity with InTeGrate principles and materials
- new colleagues engaged in this work
Time - 9:00 am PT | 10:00 am MT | 11:00 am CT | 12:00 pm ET
Duration - 1 hour
Format - Online web presentation via Adobe Connect web conference software with questions and discussion.

The powerpoint slides will be available here prior to the webinar
1) Welcome and introductory remarks - Rory McFadden, SERC staff
2) Carbon, Climate, and Energy Resources module co-author – Pete Berquist
- Strategies for students to critique technical information
- reservoirs and fluxes in the carbon cycle and corresponding impacts on climate
- non-renewable energy sources and their impact on geologic record of climate and current climate change
3) Renewable Energy and Environmental Sustainability module co-author – Benjamin Cuker
- Overview of physical principles
- Discussion of energy technologies for thermal, light, and biofuels
- Course modules focus on student-centered activities and assignments
4) Reflections by participants
- Prompt: How do you help, or plan to help (based on the materials presented in this webinar), students make connections between energy choices, climate change, and social outcomes?
5) Synthetic remarks - final remarks by presenters
The conveners will reflect on the chat and each provide a synthetic remark. The chat and final remarks will be discussed further in the InTeGrate discussion thread. This online interest group is aimed at providing you with a platform for continuing discussion and exchanging ideas with your new colleagues about renewable and non-renewable energy sources and the impact of energy consumption on climate, as well as broader InTeGrate principles that will continue to be discussed throughout the webinar series.
6) Opportunities for further interaction – Rory McFadden
- Teaching for a Sustainable Future
