Project EDDIE Module Adoption Workshop

Jump down to: Workshop Goals | Dates and Times | Costs | Application and Selection Criteria | Timeline | Location | Contact

At this 3 hour virtual Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration) workshop, participants will focus on revising and EDDIE teaching module to better fit their course. This workshop is part of how we build a community of STEM instructors and educational researchers teaching with large, publicly available datasets. Participants will be supported in adopting a module for their course. Workshop attendees will include faculty members from different disciplines and institution types and will be selected through an application process. Participants will attend the adoption workshop and then chose one or more supporting sessions designed to help you teach inclusively.


The goals of this experience are to:

  1. Connect to colleagues with interest in teaching quantitative reasoning
  2. Understand strategies for teaching with large datasets that improve quantitative reasoning in students
  3. Adapt an EDDIE teaching module to fit the class you are teaching
  4. Identify inclusive teaching strategies to support your students building quantitative reasoning skills

Dates & Times: November 5th, & 9th or 10th

The adoption workshop will be held virtually between 1-4 pm CT on Friday November 5th and then you may chose to participate in one or both supporting sessions held between 9 am - 12 pm CT on November 9th or 10th.


The workshop will be hosted virtually using Zoom by the Science Education Resource Center (SERC).

Code of Conduct

This Project EDDIE Virtual Workshop will be taking place virtually and participants are expected to abide by SERC's Code of Professional Conduct.


There is no costs for attending this professional development opportunity.

Application and Selection Criteria

The final list of participants will be developed with the goal of assembling a group of faculty and instructors from 2-year and 4-year post-secondary institutions that represent a range of institution types, disciplines (e.g., ecology, hydrology, Earth science, geology, climatology, soil science, limnology, etc.), and teaching experiences. Participants from two year institutions, tribal colleges and other minority-serving institutions are encouraged to apply. As part of your application, we ask for you to identify EDDIE module(s) that will fit into a class you teach and describe the course you are teaching in. This will prepare you for deeper work planning adaptations to a module to fit your course.


All participants are expected to:

  • Follow the Code of Conduct for the workshop
  • Attend the November 5 virtual session
  • Attend the November 9 OR November 10 virtual session (you may also attend both)
  • Develop a plan for implementing one of the existing Project EDDIE modules in your classroom (can be modified to fit your course)

Optional but encouraged:

  • Submit an Instructor Story documenting you experience following your use of the module


  • Applications Open - August 15th
  • Application Deadline - Applications are now being accepted on a rolling basis until September 15th, 2021
  • Selection Notification - October 1st, 2021
  • Registration deadline - October 15th, 2021
  • Workshop and completion of an adoption plan - November 5th, & on session on November 9th or 10th, 2021
