Project EDDIE

Artboard 7 copy.png Using EDDIE modules for the first time - What you need to know
Presenters: Jen Klug, Fairfield University

February 21, 2020 Registration »
Time: 12:00 pm PT | 1:00 pm MT | 2:00 pm CT | 3:00 pm ET

This webinar discusses what you need to know when implementing an EDDIE module for the first time. Jen Klug will discuss the strategies, tips, and EDDIE module adaptations generated by instructors that participated in the Project EDDIE Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN). The EDDIE FMN consisted of instructors meeting throughout the semester to discuss adapting and implementing EDDIE modules into their courses. Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration) is a community effort aimed at developing teaching resources and instructors that address quantitative reasoning and scientific concepts using open inquiry of publicly available data.




GETSI

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

This webinar introduces instructors to Eyes on the Hydrosphere: Tracking Water Resources teaching module from the GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) project. During the module students not only learn to increase their data analysis skills, but gain experience in tying the measurements to societal water use and needs. Case studies are taken from the Rocky Mountains (snow dominated) and Great Plains (rain dominated) and then the module culminates in students exploring data sets and water issues from their own region.




Project EDDIE

Artboard 7.png Learn to integrate NEON data into your undergraduate classroom via Macrosystems EDDIE and other resources
Presenters: Megan Jones, NEON and Cayelan Carey, Virginia Tech University

March 4, 2020 Registration »
Time: 8:00 am PT | 9:00 am MT | 10:00 am CT | 11:00 am ET

To better prepare the next generation of ecologists to conduct macrosystems-level ecology, educators across the U.S. are starting to integrate National Science Foundation's National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) data into their undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Participants in this webinar will learn how to integrate NEON data into their own classrooms, through Project EDDIE Macrosystems teaching modules, other NEON teaching modules, and through independent use of NEON data. Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration) is a community effort aimed at developing teaching resources and instructors that address quantitative reasoning and scientific concepts using open inquiry of publicly available data.




Implementing the NGSS

NAGT webinar circle small Teach Students How to Ask Their Own Questions To Explore Phenomena in an NGSS Classroom
Presenters: Sarah Westbrook, The Right Question Institute
Nicole Bolduc, Ellington Public Schools

Thursday, March 5, 2020 Registration »
Time: 1:00 pm PT | 2:00 pm MT | 3:00 pm CT | 4:00 pm ET

How can we build the capacity of all students to ask better questions and drive investigations of scientific phenomena? In this active, participatory webinar, learn the Question Formulation Technique (QFT), a simple, powerful strategy to teach students how to ask, work with, and strategically use their own questions.

Description




Implementing the NGSS

NAGT webinar circle small How to "NGSS-ify" the Question Formulation Technique: A Deep Dive
Presenters: Sarah Westbrook, The Right Question Institute
Nicole Bolduc, Ellington Public Schools

Thursday, March 26, 2020 Registration »
Time: 1:00 pm PT | 2:00 pm MT | 3:00 pm CT | 4:00 pm ET

How do you design a NGSS unit (or modify an existing NGSS storyline) so that it starts with powerful, authentic student questions? What are best practices for helping students channel their wonderings into rigorous, relevant investigations? In this webinar, veteran Middle School science teacher, Nicole Bolduc, addresses these questions and more, as we take a deep dive into adapting the Question Formulation Technique (QFT) for the NGSS classroom.




NAGT + SAGE 2YC

Artboard 12.png Using course-level data in a spirit of inquiry: Addressing enrollment, equity, and student success

Eric M. D. Baer, Highline College
Andrea Bair,Delta College
Sean Tvelia, Suffolk County Community College
Heather Macdonald, William & Mary

March 27, 2020 Registration »
Time: TBD

Course-level data, including enrollment and success rates disaggregated by demographic factors, can provide insights into areas needing attention, identify opportunities for developing more inclusive teaching practices, and used to evaluate the effectiveness of innovations. In this interactive webinar, we will present examples of using data to investigate questions related to participation and success of different populations of students. We will then explore, with participants, strategies for addressing issues raised by the data (e.g. enrollment concerns, courses that are barriers for students). We will also share how we have worked with our institutional research offices and maintain student privacy. This data-centered approach can be useful in considering how to attract students to geoscience and help them thrive, particularly those from groups underrepresented in the geosciences.




Project EDDIE

Artboard 7 copy.png Instructor story: An instructor discusses their experience adapting and implementing an EDDIE module
Presenters: Elizabeth Farrell, CUNY - Queen's College

April 16, 2020 Registration »
Time: 12:00 pm PT | 1:00 pm MT | 2:00 pm CT | 3:00 pm ET

Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration) is a community effort aimed at developing teaching resources and instructors that address quantitative reasoning and scientific concepts using open inquiry of publicly available data. An important aspect of EDDIE modules are designed to be flexible and allow the adopter to adapt the module to their classroom context. This webinar will discuss an instructor's experience adopting and adapting the EDDIE Climate Change Module at CUNY Queens.
