Time: 12:00pm PT | 1:00pm MT | 2:00pm CT | 3:00pm ET

Sustainability is a complex term that is applied to many different contexts. How do you help your students think about what sustainability entails and how it might be measured? This webinar will engage audiences in helping students in introductory environmental science and sustainability courses frame sustainability questions and identify and compare sustainability metrics using the Gapminder tool. It will highlight ways to engage your students in defining sustainability metrics and exploring publicly available datasets using an online tool from the Sustainability Metrics module.

In this webinar, we will showcase the project Introducing Geophysics for Urban and Near-surface Applications (IGUaNA). This project includes a set of curricular modules that feature the applications of shallow geophysical techniques to societally-relevant, real-world problems that are designed to help attract a more diverse population of students to the geosciences.

The "A-B-C" structure of all EDDIE modules is designed to build student skills towards independent evidence-based thinking and communicating. Using a long term data set from the Chesapeake Bay, the authors of the Hypoxia in Coastal Marine Ecosystems module will share how they designed and modified the "parts" to meet students' needs to think critically about data.  From a decade-long time series showing annual change, students step from recognizing simpler patterns to pulling apart more complex patterns with time lag and correlations.  Contextual understanding of nutrients, photosynthesis and respiration, estuarine ecosystems, and anthropogenic input all deepen the inquiry.

Meet the Author Event: Engaging students in physical oceanography through data analyses

April Watson, Lynn University

Date: Friday, November 19, 2021
Time: 11:00am PT | 12:00pm MT | 1:00pm CT | 2:00pm ET

Understanding physical processes in the ocean is an important topic covered in oceanography and hazards courses. Teaching it through data analyses helps your students better understand how the ocean works. This event brings together the authors of two project EDDIE modules: Wind and Ocean Ecosystems and Bomb Cyclones-They're Explosive so that you can explore opportunities to engage your students in exploring wind data, upwelling, and storms. You will have time for discussion with one of the authors at the end of the event.
