Contribute your Real World Example

Please use this form to describe submit a specific real-world example that you use or would like to use in your teaching about risk, resiliency and natural disasters. Submissions of real-world examples are due April 11 and will be featured in a web-based collection devoted to the interdisciplinary teaching about risk and resilience.

Real world example descriptions should provide the necessary background, key players, key teaching points, and a short reference list with readings that may be helpful for instructors or students to learn more about the example. See the Southern California Earthquake or Ft. Lauderdale Sea Level Rise pages for examples (both links open in new windows). We will ask each of you to read each others examples prior to the workshop.

Once we have your course and/or activity description(s) on our website, we will cross-link your real-world example description with it so that these complementary resources can be viewed together.
