Describe Your Course

Your submission becomes a web page. Please use this form to submit information about a course you teach that involves teaching about rates and time. The information you provide here will be used to create a web page describing your course. You are encouraged to upload files to accompany your example. To see what this will look like, read an example description of a course on the Earth's climate system (opens in a new window).

By contributing your work to this website, you give On the Cutting Edge a license for non-commercial distribution of the material, provided that we attribute the material to you.

There are two ways to use this form:
  1. Fill out part of the form and edit the resulting web page directly. After you submit this form you will immediately be able to view a page containing your materials and make changes to that page. You will be able to add information, upload supporting materials, change the page title, or make any other changes you would like. In this case, all you have to enter on this form is your name, email address, and course title. (If you don't enter your email address on this form, you won't be able to edit the page.)
  2. Fill out the entire form and wait for us to make it into a web page. If you choose not to make your submission into a page yourself, SERC staff will take care of making your submission into a page. This process usually takes a few days, although just before a workshop it may take longer. Note: If you choose this route, you must fill out the entire form in a single session and complete all fields. If you intend to do this, please read through the form and make sure that you have all of the information you will need before you begin. Also, please pay careful attention to spelling and grammar; we will not proofread your submission before we make it into a page.
Thank you in advance for making this contribution!

Design of the CourseCourse Goals
Please briefly describe the learning goals for your course, including content knowledge they should master, skills in which they should be proficient, and changes in attitude you wish to foster. Course goals are most useful if they are concrete, have measurable outcomes, and provide clear direction for the course. Consider phrasing each of your goals as a statement beginning "Students will be able to ...". For example:
For a geologic hazards course: "Students will be able to research and evaluate news reports of a natural disaster and to communicate their analyses to someone else."

For a course in physical geology: "Students will be able to integrate different types of data (e.g. topographic maps, geologic maps, cross-sections, stratigraphic columns, photographs, diagrams and/or tables and figures) to reconstruct scenarios that reflect the internal and/or surficial processes that create the widely varying landscapes that we see today."
