Project EDDIE aims to engage the community to develop a larger suite of flexible EDDIE teaching modules that pair scientific concepts and quantitative reasoning with teaching with data. We seek proposals that:

  1. Develop students' quantitative reasoning (QR) ability to interpret data and to reason with numbers in real-world situations
  2. Engage students with LTER datasets in biology, geology, ecology, environmental science, or related fields
  3. Utilize engaging, student-centered teaching pedagogies (Opens in a new window)
  4. Contribute new concepts to the existing suite of EDDIE teaching modules (Opens in a new window)

Please answer the following questions in relation to the module your are proposing to develop.

Please select all that apply to your course:

We collect the following information for our reports to the National Science Foundation, which funds this project. Data collected will be anonymized and reported only in aggregate. These questions are optional and you are welcome to skip any of these questions if you prefer not to answer them.

In confirming my registration for this workshop, I agree that any audio recording or images (still or video) made of me during the workshop may be used on the project website, in printed project publications, and in materials developed by the project. I further agree that my contributions to creative works that emerge from workshop activities (e.g., discussions on the email list, contributions to the web page, summaries of group discussions, etc.) may be used by the workshop series, PIs, and conveners for development of future workshop materials, for scholarly reports, and for promotion of the workshop series. Attribution for original contributions will be made whenever possible.

Project EDDIE seeks to develop high quality teaching materials that are easy for instructors to adopt and adapt in their teaching. A series of webinars and workshops will help the project align resources with the community needs. We are conducting surveys and assessing workshop and webinar discussions to better understand 1) barriers and solutions for teaching quantitative reasoning with large data sets, and 2) the effect of the professional development on participants. These data will be incorporated into our research results in aggregate. Presentation of the material will be confined to project work groups, professional publications, and conferences. When individual quotes are used to illustrate important points, your name will not be identified. There are no foreseeable risks resulting from your participation.


I have read the Description of the Evaluation of Participation and Implications of Consent (opens in a new window) or it was read to me. I know the possible risks and benefits.
