InTeGrate 101: How to incorporate InTeGrate classroom materials into your courses

Friday, December 8, 2017

9:00 am PT | 10:00 am MT | 11:00 am CT | 12:00 pm ET

Presenter: Elizabeth Nagy-Shadman (Pasadena City College),
With guest Module Authors: Lisa Gilbert, Williams College; Lisa Doner, Plymouth State University; Patricia Stapleton, Worcester Polytechnic Institute

This webinar is part of a series supporting teaching with InTeGrate principles, using InTeGrate-developed and curated materials as tools.

Registration is closed.


In this free, one-hour webinar participants will be introduced to the large collection of InTeGrate teaching materials and provided with strategies to incorporate activities into their own college classrooms. These data-rich activities provide up front learning outcomes, embedded assessment tools, and instructor stories from a variety of institution types. Following a brief overview of how the InTeGrate materials were designed, we will navigate through the online collection and examine several specific activities that use active learning strategies such as jigsaws, role-playing, and gallery walks. Several module authors will also join us and give brief overviews of highlights of their modules.


At the end of this webinar, participants will have:

  • understood how the InTeGrate materials were developed and met required criteria.
  • learned how to navigate within the InTeGrate website to find activities that they can use in their courses. They will become familiar with the general format and common features of all modules, such as links to Earth Science Literacy Principles, formative and summative assessments, instructor stories, lecture (ppt) slides, answer keys, and many more.
  • heard directly from module authors about highlights of their modules (including Systems Thinking and Major Storms and Community Resilience)
