TWO CLIMATE CHANGE WORKSHOPS FOR EDUCATORS

Dickinson College invites applications to participate in two programs for interdisciplinary teaching about climate change.

Changing Planet Faculty Study Group—July 19-22, Carlisle, PA
(Applications due April 23)

A learning community to support interdisciplinary teaching about Earth science and human dimensions of climate change, members of the study group will participate in a four-day workshop on the Dickinson College campus in Carlisle, PA and other activities over the 2010-2011 academic year. The program is appropriate for arts and humanities, social science and natural science faculty members.

Climate Modeling and Data Applications Workshop—August 9-12, Carlisle, PA
(Applications due April 23)

A workshop is being offered at Dickinson College to provide training in the use of the Educational Global Climate model (EdGCM, http://edgcm.columbia.edu/), and a data visualization tool, Terraviva!SEDAC (http://sedac.ciesin.columbia.edu/terraVivaUserWeb/), for undergraduate teaching. No mathematical modeling, computer modeling, or GIS skills are needed, just comfort working with spreadsheets.

These opportunities are supported by a NASA cooperative agreement with Dickinson College, “Cooling the Liberal Arts Curriculum, a Campaign for Climate Change Education at 4- and 2-Year Liberal Arts Colleges.” Priority for participation in these two programs is given to faculty members from the partner colleges, but 10 spaces are reserved in each program for faculty members from other colleges and universities.
