EDDIE Earth and Ecosystems
The Project EDDIE: Earth and Ecosystems initiative continues the work done in EDDIE Environmental Data and EDDIE: Macrosystems to create teaching modules that expand the range of topics, datasets, and quantitative skills that students learn. The project will develop and validate a much larger suite of curricular modules to 1) improve student quantitative reasoning, 2) develop a community of practice to engage faculty members and foster a pedagogical orientation that favors open inquiry with large datasets and, 3) determine what mechanisms contribute to shifts in an instructor's pedagogical orientation.
