Teaching Undergraduate Atmospheric Science in the 21st Century

This workshop has been cancelled.

This workshop is Cutting Edge's first comprehensive workshop for Atmospheric Science and expands significantly on coverage of this topic in our collections. Workshop session topics focus on exploring ways to effectively teach Atmospheric Science in undergraduate Earth science courses. One of the important results of the workshop will be contributions of teaching materials, insights on teaching methodology, and the development of classroom resources that take advantage of cutting edge technology. Our targeted outcomes include:

  • Focused sharing and development of excellent models and strategies for teaching atmospheric sciences at the undergraduate level.
  • Creation of a cohort of educator-scholars who desire to shape the future of undergraduate education in atmospheric sciences.
  • Initiating collaboration on new approaches to systematic research on effective educational techniques, technology, and ideas.

Each participant will submit and participate in the review of teaching activities, and will be part of a vibrant discussion of new materials, methods, and teaching resources that use cutting edge technology.
