Webinar Description

This webinar will focus on possible ways to scale up from classroom use of InTeGrate modules at two-year-colleges (2YCs) to thinking on a larger, program-level scale. The InTeGrate website describes these opportunities as "Implementation Programs". Institutions, or clusters of institutions, are invited to apply for grants of up to $50,000 to develop and evaluate programs that model innovative ways of 1) increasing the number and diversity of students developing Earth literacy and/or 2) preparing a diverse workforce equipped to bring geosciences to bear in addressing societal issues. This webinar will be a place to learn more about these opportunities and hear from some 2YC groups that are doing innovative things in a similar vein. Participants will have the opportunity to ask the presenters questions and discuss implementation program options.

Webinar Goals

  • Encourage 2YC faculty to adopt InTeGrate modules at a scale that is larger than a single course.
  • Present InTeGrate implementation program opportunities to 2YC faculty.
  • Showcase current 2YC programs that have moved beyond an individual classroom of change (not necessarily using InTeGrate materials).
  • Allow participants to ask questions about possible implementation programs involving their own college.
