Jan 20, 2022 - Feb 10, 2022

Do you want to build curriculum that features engaging students in inquiry and quantitative reasoning using openly available earth and environmental data? Apply to participate in the January 2022 Project EDDIE Module Development & Community Building Experience. Participants in the workshop support one another while they develop a module using an openly available dataset, featuring inquiry and quantitative reasoning. The module development and community building will take place over several workshop days:

  • Thursday, Jan 20 Kick-off meeting (10-3 Central)
  • Thursday, Jan 27 (10-3 Central)
  • Thursday, Feb 10 (12-4 Central)
  • We also support participants as they teach their activities through small group meetings that keep you connected to colleagues with similar interests in teaching inquiry with open data.

About this experience

During the workshop you will construct a module that uses an openly available dataset for an ecology, limnology, geology, hydrology, or environmental science course. Each module will focus on specific scientific concepts and address a set of quantitative reasoning or analytical skills using large datasets that are available online. A virtual peer review and module share out and dissemination planning meeting will help you improve your module before piloting and identify linkages in themes, skills, habits, and target audiences to build interest for your module. Participants will include instructors from different disciplines and institution types and will be selected through an application process. Participants will be expected to develop their module during the workshop and attend a virtual follow-on session that supports reflection on your teaching. Participants are expected to complete a module, teach it, and incorporate revisions from the peer review and an external review. Final modules will be published by December 2022. Participants and will be provided a $1500 stipend for completing their work.
