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 new EDDIE Modules that span the disciplines of biology, geology, climatology, oceanography, and sustainability.
Apply Now to join the Fall 2021 Project EDDIE Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN) with the support of BioQUEST/QUBES.
This FMN will bring together instructors interested in implementing Project EDDIE teaching modules that address scientific concepts and quantitative reasoning using publicly available large datasets and inquiry-driven learning. Project EDDIE modules address scientific topics spanning environmental disciplines with a flexible structure to fit all teaching situations and fit with your learning objectives.
Participants will focus on learning to adapt and implement one of the newly developed EDDIE modules in their undergraduate courses by participating in biweekly virtual sessions 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.
The Following Modules will be available as part of this FMN:
- Paleoclimate and Ocean Biogeochemistry
- Sustainability Metrics
- Hypoxia in Coastal Marine Ecosystems
- Phenology Trends and Climate Change in Minnesota
- Bomb Cyclones- They're Explosive
- Plate Tectonics: GPS Data, Boundary Zones, and Earthquake Hazards
- Wind and Ocean Ecosystems
