Please consider attending this webinar - it features one of the modules developed by the UNAVCO-led GETSI Project (GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues). Learn the components of the introductory undergraduate level module on “Ice Mass and Sea Level Changes” which includes data sets such as InSAR, satellite altimetry, and vertical GPS.



 
We are pleased to announce the next installment in the 2016 InTeGrate professional development webinar series.
 
Free and open to the public, this series will incorporate InTeGrate pedagogies into teaching practices, provide resources available for adoption, and create a forum for participants to learn and share teaching strategies.
 
Join us for our third webinar:

Using Data to Teach About Societally Important Questions <http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/workshops/webinars/2015_2016/teachingwithdata/index.html>
One, 60-minute virtual session - Wednesday, March 23
10:00 am Pacific | 11:00 am Mountain | 12:00 pm Central | 1:00 pm Eastern 
Registration deadline <http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/workshops/webinars/2015_2016/teachingwithdata/teachingwithdatareg.html>: Tuesday, March 22

This webinar will provide an opportunity to hear from geoscience faculty who connect the use of data and earth modeling to learning about the Earth in their courses (more information on teaching sustainability <http://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/teaching_materials/index.html>). Becca Walker and Beth Pratt-Sitaula are the author and editor (respectively) of Ice Mass and Sea Level Changes <http://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/teaching_materials/ice_sealevel/index.html>, a UNAVCO <https://www.unavco.org/>-developed, geodesy-focused GETSI <http://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html>module that uses authentic geodetic data to introduce students to the scientific and societal aspects of sea level change. Kirsten Menking is the author of the InTeGrate module: Earth Modeling(coming live in the Fall) that develops students' qualitative and quantitative tools for constructing, experimenting with, and interpreting dynamic models of different components of the Earth system. The webinar will include presentations on specific teaching strategies/tools and will provide opportunities for discussion. Participants are encouraged to both ask questions of the presenters and discuss their own experiences of using data to teach about societally important issues.
