The InTeGrate team is very interested to hear about how the materials we've developed are being used and adopted by our fellow educators. Your feedback will help us evolve the materials in the right direction and help us make the case that this work should continue.
Instructor Stories (opens in new window) are an important way for faculty share to their experiences using InTeGrate materials in their classroom. We encourage you to take a few minutes and contribute your story. It will become a web page that others can learn from.

Choosing the correct file type here will override that.
e.g. 'student_handout'This will be the name of the downloaded file. By default
the system will generate this based on the title you specified and the type of file. If you
specify a name here it will over-ride the automatically generated name. This is generally only
useful when uploading file of a type not recognized by the system (not in the list of
file types above). In that situation choose File Type: Unknown Binary and include the appropriate
suffix in the file name here. e.g. myfile.m3z
Avoid spaces or special characters in the file names.
(You)Someone else -- Describe below.
A short description of where the material came from. Include names and institutions of authors and contributors as well as acknowledgment of any work from which this was derived.
The creator/copyright holder must have agreed to allow distribution of this file through this site. If you are the creator we strongly encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option.
If none of the above licenses apply describe the conditions under
which this material appears on this site as well as any information
about reuse beyond this site.
Distributing information on the web generally requires the permission of the copyright holder--usually the original creator. Providing the information we request here will help visitors to this site understand the ways in which they may (legally) use what they find.
If you created this file (and haven't signed away your copyright) then we'd encourage you to select the CC Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike option. You'll retain the copyright to your file and can do as you please with it in the future.
Through this choice you are also explicitly allowing others to reuse that file as long as they give you attribution, and don't use it for commercial purposes.
If the file (or content within it) was created by others you'll need their permission. If it predates 1923 or was created by a U.S federal employee (as part of their job) it is likely in the public domain (and we can all do as we choose with it). The original author may also have explicitly stated how it may be reused (e.g. through a creative commons license). You can describe the licensing/reuse situation in the box above.
Without permission you should not upload the file. There are several options in this case:
The Stanford Copyright and Fair Use Center has more good information about copyright as it applies to academic settings.
My course is introductory geology with an environmental emphasis, usually taught with a fairly traditional lecture, textbook, lab, and exam format. In recent years I've been gradually turning over content to allow students to take a more active role in acquiring the material (e.g., through acting out concepts or performing exercises integrated with lectures). This module represents the next phase of that transition—the maximum immersion possible in a classroom setting—where I would most like the rest of my curriculum to be.
My students were incredibly engaged throughout the module. The majority of students were hopeful about the future and empowered to make a difference after completing the module (a stark contrast to the general malaise following teaching climate more traditionally/typically in previous semesters). This module provides them the ability to immerse themselves in a subject that is very important to them but usually feels very foreign, helping them frame the module experience (and therefore their association with climate science) as positive. I also believe this module (more than the other more traditional units in the class) demonstrated to students the importance of geoscience to their lives and futures.
For the end of your intro statement, please add an inspirational quote that instills the value of using the module in your class.
Detailed breakdown, by unit, for how you implemented the module within the course -- can be a bulleted list broken out by unit that walks instructors through how you implemented the units in your classroom, including helpful tips and supplemental documents.
