Your submission becomes a web page. If you have a WILSIM-based teaching activity that you would like to share with other college faculty across the country, tell us about it. The information you provide here will be used to create a web page describing your activity. You are encouraged to upload files to accompany your example.
Avoiding duplicate activities: Before you complete this form, please check the SERC activity collection (opens in a new window) to see if the activity already exists in our collections. This is especially important if you are contributing an activity that is based on another person's activity or that others may use in their course. If your activity is very similar to one that is already in our collections, please email SERC for options on how to proceed.
There are two ways to use this form:
Thank you in advance for sharing your activity!
Please provide a full description of your activity or assignment and its outcomes. Be sure to include essential key words or index terms to help users find resources using our search/browse functions. The sample description below is intended as a model.
To prepare for this exercise, each student chooses one data set that has been used to tackle the question of recurrence interval of large earthquakes and seismic risk in the Cascadia subduction system and reads several articles from the literature (turbidites, tree rings, coastal subsidence, the orphan tsunami of AD 1700). Each student comes to class prepared to present the data to a group of classmates, and the group puts the various studies together to evaluate the overall question of recurrence interval and risk. This activity gives students practice in reading the literature, interpreting data sets, analyzing uncertainty and limitations of data, synthesizing disparate data sets to address a problem, and peer teaching.
You may upload up to five files to accompany your submission. If you have more than five files, we recommend that you upload the first 5 using this form and then attaching the rest by editing your activity page after you hit the submit button. Any files uploaded here will be embedded in the final page so that users can download them.
Please be sure all materials you upload can be freely redistributed. If you have questions, please read our information about copyright (opens in new window).

Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.
(You)Someone else -- Describe below.
A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.
The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site. If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.
If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under
which this material appears on this site as well as any information
about reuse beyond this site.
Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.
If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future.
Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.
If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:
The Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Center has more good information about copyright as it applies to academic settings.
Please share references and links to online resources that discuss the specific activity or will support faculty and/or students using the activity. Please include basic citation information (or url) as well as a brief description of the resource and why it is relevant.
