Engaging Minority University STEM Education Professors in the Science of Climate Change
Start Date: 7/28/2013
End Date: 8/1/2013End Time: Midnight
Event Description
Elizabeth City State University has joined with the University of New Hampshire under the NASA Innovations in Climate Education (NICE) to empower faculty of education programs at Minority Serving Institutions to better engage their pre-service teachers in teaching and learning about global climate change through the use of NASA Earth observation sets. This project is designed to impact teaching first on college campuses within science education classes. Second, as pre-service teachers transition into in-service teachers, the impact will extend to elementary and secondary schools.
The faculty will conduct field work that emphasizes place-based pedagogy. They will work with an ecological model in STELLA that utilizes authentic inputs from historical and future climate scenario parameters, with NASA satellite imagery data from the MODIS and SeaWiFS sensors, and discuss the challenges and approaches to integrating all or some of the lessons into their courses.
