In this workshop we will introduce instructors to newly created teaching modules on Ecological Forecasting.These materials take a structured approach to helping undergraduate students learn to apply the iterative forecasting cycle to develop an ecological forecast for a NEON site and practice creating forecasts that are effectively designed and communicated to managers and the public.


The goals of this experience are to:

  • Connect with colleagues with a shared interest in teaching inquiry with open data
  • Learn about strategies for teaching with large datasets that improve quantitative reasoning in students
  • Integrate ecological forecasting into course materials
