Passing along a call to apply for funding to development of
undergraduate curriculum materials - a great opportunity!
InTeGrate is seeking proposals from faculty and instructors to author
new undergraduate-level teaching materials and model courses. All
materials will be developed, tested and published by collaborative teams
drawn from a minimum of three institutions and must support at least 2
weeks of instruction. Each team member will receive a $15,000 stipend
for their work authoring, testing, revising, and publishing the teaching
materials and supporting materials for faculty. Teaching materials will
be focused on:
* modules or courses that use a humanities, engineering or social
science frame to teach about the Earth.
* modules or courses that bring learning about the Earth into the core
majors curriculum in biology, engineering, economics, or other
disciplines OR that bring engineering, economics, business or other
disciplines into the core geoscience majors
* modules for introductory geoscience or environmental science on any
of six topics integrating geoscience and societal issues.
For more information about the InTeGrate materials development and
testing process and requirements for proposers and to apply, see
Proposed deadline is July 15, 2014
InTeGrate is funded by a 5-year STEP Center grant from the National
Science Foundation. The program supports the teaching of geoscience in
the context of societal issues both within geoscience courses and across
the undergraduate curriculum. Our goal is to develop a citizenry and
workforce that can address environmental and resource issues facing our
society in a just and sustainable way.
