2019 Fall Cyberseminar Series:

Emerging Advances in Hydrologic Education

Host: Emad Habib, University of Louisisana at Lafayette

With the increasing complexity in our natural and built systems, and with the recent advances in data and modeling technologies, hydrology educators recognize the need for providing learning experiences that address such challenges and opportunities. This Cyberseminar series will cover new developments that have emerged recently in the field of hydrology education, including: data and modeling-based learning experiences; use of active-learning pedagogies; development of open educational resources; digital and online education approaches; innovative methods for collaboration and sharing of learning resources; and water interdisciplinary curricula. The session highlights efforts at both undergraduate and graduate academic settings, as well as community and citizen-science engagements.   

All talks take place on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. ET.
