TERC's Center for Earth and Space Science Education (CESSE) creates innnovative materials for Earth and space science education, featuring science as inquiry, Earth as a dynamic system, and interactive visualizations. Several of these projects involve partnerships with other institutions and all have some form of embedded professional development.
Examples include:

CESSE also conducts professional development in Earth science in two innovative programs:

Earth Science by Design - inquiry-based professional development in the "big ideas" of Earth science, based on the principles of "Understanding by Design" (contact Harold_McWilliams@terc.edu)

Earth Science from a new Perspective - on-line professional development program engaging teachers in Earth science investigations, focusing on the Nile River as a deep example (contact Sue_Doubler@terc.edu)

CESSE also produced the report of the National Conference on the Revolution in Earth and Space Science Education (more info) (along with Dr. Ed Geary, PI). This report sets the larger stage for the "revolution" in Earth and space science education in which scientists, educators, policy-makers and professional organizations are at work.
