EDDIE workshops bring together faculty and instructors to build a community interested in understanding the needs and barriers associated with teaching quantitative reasoning and teaching with large datasets. Other workshops include particpants developing teaching modules for courses across environmental and Earth science disciplines to be sequenced or used as a stand-alone material for in-class laboratory sessions, homework, or online.
