Apply to Participate in the Fall 2022 Project EDDIE-QUBES Faculty Mentoring Network
Teaching Scientific Concepts and Quantitative Reasoning with Data
Applications are due September 1st-Apply Now
Are you looking to teach scientific concepts using data exploration and open inquiry? Are you interested in teaching quantitative reasoning in your classroom? Project EDDIE is excited to offer a suite of teaching modules that span the disciplines of biology, geology, climatology, oceanography, and sustainability.
Join the Fall 2022 Project EDDIE Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) with the support of QUBES.
This FMN will bring together instructors interested in implementing Project EDDIE teaching modules that address scientific concepts and quantitative reasoning using publicly available data. Project EDDIE modules address scientific topics spanning environmental disciplines with a flexible structure to fit all teaching situations. This spring the FMN will be working with six modules featuring sustainability and climate solutions that can be used in introductory ecology, biology, geology, sustainability and climate change courses.
- Sustainability Metrics
- Green Infrastructure/Green Roofs
- Prairie Eco Services
- Paleoclimate & Biogeochemistry
- Phenology Trends & Climate Change in Minnesota
- Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data
Participants will focus on learning to adapt and implement one of the EDDIE modules above in their undergraduate courses by participating in biweekly virtual sessions throughout the semester (mid Jan-April) to collaborate with and support others in the network and receive mentoring. Participants will leave the FMN with experience using the modules available for implementation in multiple classroom settings, access to a network of peers, and an instructor story to share their experience about adapting and implementing an EDDIE module in their classroom.
