Teaching Quantitative Reasoning with Real Data - The EDDIE Way!

Thursday, Friday 8:30am-11:30am


Christopher Berg, Orange Coast College
Dax Soule, CUNY Queens College

Please join us as we introduce you to the Project EDDIE resource collection – the results of an NSF-funded effort to create flexible classroom modules that aim to expose students to real-world data and practice critical analysis and quantitative reasoning skills. The collection of modules includes a variety of topics in ecology, earth and environmental sciences and is freely available online. This two-day workshop will include short presentations of EDDIE materials, discussions of the common elements of structure of all EDDIE materials and the benefits of teaching with data on student learning, opportunities to freely explore the EDDIE collection, and time to consider revisions and adaptations to modules that are appropriate for participants' courses; our goal is that participants will leave with an action plan to adapt a module for their use in a new or existing course.
