September 8, 17, and 28, 2021
This by-invitation experience begins with a 3 day virtual curriculum development workshop that will engage participants from the LTER community in designing and developing undergraduate teaching modules that showcase LTER data. Modules developed will connect students with LTER research interests and provide them with the opportunity to analyze LTER data. To build on the breadth of our existing teaching materials we are recruiting faculty from LTER sites that explore desert ecosystems and urban ecosystems, and using ecosystems data to engage for justice, equity, diversity, & inclusion. After the workshop, you will meet with your community and support each by discussing your teaching experiences and shared interests.
November 5, and 9 or 10, 2021 - 6 hours total
This workshop supports instructors interested in teaching quantitative reasoning & inquiry with openly available data through EDDIE teaching modules. During the first session of the workshop you will have support customizing an EDDIE module to fit your environmental science, geology, ecology, or related course. Then you will chose a second supporting session that best fits your instructional goals for inclusive teaching and student community building. Participants will be provided a stipend for full participation which includes completing a plan to adopt an EDDIE module.
