This webinar explores ideas for connecting the Green Infrastructure/Green Roofs module to other areas of your course to improve student learning. There are opportunities to reinforce analytical and conceptual understanding important to hydrology and sustainability. You will learn about examples of how the module was connected to other content in a non majors environmental science course, but reflect on and discuss connections to content in your course. Participants will explore a user friendly hydrological modeling website that can help students evaluate real world solutions to urban runoff by encouraging critical thinking and problem solving.
By the end of the event attendees will:
- Have an introduction to the strategies for teaching students about green infrastructure.
- Learn about the Project EDDIE Green Infrastructure/Green Roofs module and how it was implemented
- Gain ideas for how you might adapt the Project EDDIE Green Infrastructure/Green Roofs module for use in your classroom.
