This workshop has already taken place. Workshop outcomes can be viewed on the program page.

Application Deadline: October 1, 2010
Workshop fee: $50

Numerical climate model output depicting sea-surface temperature during the Eocene (C. Shellito).

Be a part of this online workshop exploring the role of numerical models in undergraduate climate change education. Learn about resources available online, hear from other faculty with experience using numerical models in the classroom and develop or adapt classroom exercises and assessments for your own use. The workshop will consist of a blend of synchronous presentations, online discussions, work time and collaborative efforts.

This workshop is for faculty who would like to enhance their teaching about the climate system and climate dynamics by incorporating numerical models and model output data, and for those interested in sharing their experiences teaching climate change.

Please join us to:

  • Learn about numerical models from experts
  • Develop strategies for incorporating global climate model results available online into your classroom.
  • Share ideas on developing and assessing instructional activities that incorporate numerical models.
  • Join a community of scholars who are interested in finding new and engaging ways to communicate the science of climate change.

Workshop Conveners

  • Cindy Shellito, University of Northern Colorado
  • Cathy Manduca, Science Education Resource Center

This workshop is part of the On the Cutting Edge professional development program for current and future geoscience faculty, and is sponsored by the National Association of Geoscience Teachers with funding provided by a grant from the National Science Foundation - Division of Undergraduate Education .
