Dear Colleagues,

We have an exciting fall workshop that you won't want to miss!

The Module Development Workshop will be held at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota from October 28-30. This workshop focuses on participants developing flexible EDDIE teaching modules that pair scientific concepts and quantitative reasoning with teaching with data.

The wealth of large authentic datasets online provides an opportunity to engage students in scientific inquiry while simultaneously improving quantitative reasoning. This workshop brings together instructors from a variety of disciplines and institutions who will be guided through developing teaching modules that use the community-identified best practices for using large datasets to improve quantitative reasoning in students. Module topics, proposed by the participants, will span scientific concepts in ecology, limnology, geology, hydrology, and environmental sciences. Participants will be expected to develop and teach their module, as well as revise and publish it to the Project EDDIE website by the end of June 2020, and will be provided a stipend for their work. Learn more about the workshop program on the Project EDDIE website.

This workshop also provides special opportunities to:

  • Understand how working with large datasets improves quantitative reasoning in students
  • Develop an EDDIE module for a class you will be teaching
  • Incorporate your module into your syllabus/course schedule and develop an assessment plan

Costs There is no registration cost for attending this meeting and Project EDDIE will cover the cost of dual occupancy hotel accommodations and meals during the workshop. Travel reimbursement is available to help offset participant travel to Carleton College in Northfield, MN. Please state your travel needs on the application form. A shuttle to and from Minneapolis-Saint Paul Airport (MSP) will be arranged for participants arriving by air.

Module Development Stipend - The successful completion of a module includes up to a $1,500 stipend. Successful completion of the modules includes authoring, piloting, revising, and publishing the teaching and supporting materials.

The application deadline for this workshop is August 25, 2019.


We look forward to seeing you this October in Northfield!
