Project EDDIE Module Adoption Workshop
November 5th and November 9th OR 10th
Virtual Workshop (3 hour core session, plus one or two additional sessions)
About this workshop:
This workshop supports instructors in using and revising curricular modules and teaching with large publicly-accessible datasets to improve student quantitative reasoning skills in undergraduate ecology, biology, environmental science and related courses. This curriculum development and community building opportunity is tailored to people who would like to use an EDDIE teaching module in their courses, and want to have support in adopting and implementing this module in their classroom. We will guide you in adapting an undergraduate teaching module for your course(s) and for broader use. Your module adaptions will help other instructors make adjustments to modules in their own classes. We are excited to expand the breadth of instructors teaching with Project EDDIE teaching materials, and are inviting participants from all institutional and instructional settings (online, hybrid, face-to-face) to join us in planning your Project EDDIE module use.
The experience begins with reflection on the Project EDDIE format and structuring that supports student learning and then provides time for you to plan and discuss your ideas for fitting a module into your course. To continue building expertise and community, you have the option of attending one or two additional sessions to help you teach quantitative reasoning and inquiry inclusively. Workshops will also connect you with other educators and help you better engage students through authentic data analyses.
