EDDIE Earth and Ecosystems
Earth and Ecosystems expands the range of topics (e.g., biology, ecology, geology, hydrology, environmental science), datasets, and quantitative reasoning skills (e.g., processing, communicating, and interpreting quantitative data) through validating curricular modules and developing a community of practice to engage faculty members fostering inquiry with large datasets. Teaching modules aim to improve students' quantitative reasoning skills.
Macrosystems ecology is the study of ecological dynamics at multiple interacting spatial and temporal scales. Our interdisciplinary team is developing flexible classroom modules that introduce undergraduate students to the core concepts of macrosystems ecology and simulation modeling through the lens of limnology.
EDDIE Environmental Data
Our interdisciplinary team of faculty and research scientists developed flexible classroom modules that aim to expose undergraduate students to such real-world experiences. These modules utilize large, long-term, high-frequency and sensor-based datasets that can be used in a variety of introductory, mid-level, and advanced courses. Module topics include climatology, limnology, seismology, soil science, and hydrology.
