Description

The National Association of Geoscience Teachers is an organization that works to support a diverse, inclusive, and thriving community of educators and education researchers to improve teaching and learning about the Earth through programming, professional development, publications, scholarships and awards, and advocacy. This webinar will provide an overview of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) to the CUAHSI community. Participants will get a brief introduction to NAGT and NAGT's Teach the Earth portal, which allows users to search and browse thousands of activities, as well as water-related modules developed through InTeGrate, a project focused on integrating teaching about Earth across the undergraduate curriculum for a sustainable society. Additionally, an NAGT member will discuss Project EDDIE, an NSF supported NAGT-sponsored program that is developing flexible classroom teaching modules using large, publicly available datasets to engage students in STEM and improve their quantitative reasoning. 

Speakers: 

Mitchell Bender-Awalt, Science Education Resource Center (SERC) - Carleton College

Anne Egger, Director - NAGT 

Tom Meixner - University of Arizona

Description

This webinar will provide an overview of the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. (CUAHSI) to the NAGT community. Topics to be covered include, CUAHSI's Data and Compute Services for discovering, sharing, archiving, and publishing water-related data and other resources such as geologic information. In addition, CUAHSI's services for enabling reproducible workflows and code sharing through Jupyter notebooks will be reviewed, as well as computational services. Finally, CUAHSI's services for supporting education and outreach to the community will be discussed. A representative for a CUAHSI member institution will discuss ways in which her Geology department has benefited from CUAHSI's educational and data services. 

Webinar Goals

In this webinar, participants will: 

  • Become familiar with CUAHSI
  • Learn about CUAHSI's water-related data, code sharing, and computational services
  • Engage with representatives from CUAHSI

Speakers: 

Jerad Bales, Executive Director - CUAHSI

Anne Jefferson, Associate Professor - Department of Geology, Kent State University 

 

Hydrology webinar survey participants needed!

NAGT and CUAHSI are teaming up to host a hydrology webinar series that is designed to: 

  • Bridge the two organizations and faculty from different disciplines; 
  • Increase awareness of both organizations' resources; 
  • Develop inclusive teaching materials for hydro-courses. 

This series also aims to better understand the needs of the members of both organizations to help inform future work, therefore your participation in a survey is requested. Take the survey by clicking here
