Over the eight years Project EDDIE has been active, we have devoted significant time and effort to developing curricula for courses in environmental fields that will strengthen teaching quantitative reasoning using large data sets in the undergraduate classroom. To this end, the Project EDDIE community has developed a rich suite of modules and supporting teaching materials to maximize our impact on higher education and on the development of a diverse and quantitatively literate society that can address the environmental issues we face.

We now endeavor to build leadership among community members who have been extensively involved in Project EDDIE programming and curriculum development. Project EDDIE would like to help you learn to lead effective professional development events and to spread the word about the project and the 'EDDIE Way.' By taking leadership roles in workshops, webinars, faculty mentoring networks, and other initiatives over the 2022-23 academic year, we hope to magnify the reach of the project and continue to grow the community and increase its impact.

Workshop Goals

The goals of this workshop are to:

  • Increase leadership capacity of past EDDIE event participants with guidance and practice in designing and facilitating professional development events, including:
    • Workshops for your peers at professional conferences or regional meetings
    • Webinars directed at broad or focused audiences
    • Other events as opportunities arise
  • Increase participant understanding of and confidence with teaching the "EDDIE Way" through interactive activities and presentations
  • Develop implementation plans to lead events over the next year

Dates: September 25-27, 2022

The workshop will begin at 3:00 PM on September 25 and conclude at12:00 PM on September 27, 2022.
