How the Community is Using InTeGrate Materials

InTeGrate has a strong community of educators from across the US, many of whom are primarily undergraduate faculty, who are actively involved with the project in a variety of ways. A growing community of faculty at over 600 institutions is adopting and adapting InTeGrate materials for their classrooms. Read more about how these materials are being adopted and adapted across the curriculum in a variety of institution types.

Adapting InTeGrate Materials at the Program Level

Implementation programs provide examples of how InTeGrate materials have been used at the program-level at a variety of institutions. For example:

  • The University of Texas El Paso partnered with El Paso Community College (EPCC) and local early college high schools (ECHS) to use of InTeGrate curriculum in courses taught within these institutions, using activities as bridges for faculty and students at these institutions and as a mechanism to increase interest in the earth sciences and climate science.
  • The Washington State implementation program used InTeGrate materials, principles, and strategies to inform a shared vision for teacher preparation in Washington State that is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
  • Additional programs have also participated in these implementation program projects and are currently writing the results of their projects.

Adapting InTeGrate Materials for Biology Courses

A group of biologists involved with the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis (QUBES) project have adopted and adapted InTeGrate materials into their classroom. These implementations have been described in faculty instructor stories, showcased in the links below. Read more about their implementation process.

  • Alison Hale, Using Climate of Change in Foundations of Biology 2 at University of Pittsburgh-Main Campus
  • Tara Jo Holmberg, Using A Growing Concern in Introduction to Environmental Science at Northwestern Connecticut Community College
  • Robert Loeb, Using A Growing Concern in Introductory Soil Science at Pennsylvania State University-Penn State DuBois
  • Rachel Pigg, Using InTeGrate Materials in Survey of Life at Presbyterian College
  • Sylvia Secchi, Using Map your Hazards in Geography, People and the Environment at Southern Illinois University Carbondale

Webinars and Workshops with Tips for Adapting and Adopting Materials

Several workshops and webinars have focused on ways to integrate materials into the classroom. Recordings of these webinars and related resources are available from the links below. These include:

Utilizing the InTeGrate Materials Development Model

The GETSI project has adopted the InTeGrate module format to develop materials that feature geodetic data and quantitative skills applied to societally important issues (climate change, natural hazards, water resources, etc.). See the GETSI project's teaching materials.
