We are pleased to announce a faculty development workshop on interactive, cross-disciplinary climate change education tools.
With support from UMass Lowell’s Climate Action Plan, the National Science Foundation, and NASA, this workshop will be presented by faculty from the UMass Lowell Climate Change Initiative and members of Climate Interactive, an organization at the forefront of creating decision-support simulations around climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Workshop participants will:
* Obtain resources for explaining key climate change science concepts and overcoming common misconceptions.
* Use systems thinking skills and tools to generate insights into complex, dynamic aspects of climate, energy, and related human systems.
* Learn about and experience simulation role-‐playing exercises framed by Climate Interactive’s accessible, transparent, and scientifically rigorous computer simulations.
* Create an implementation plan for bringing climate change education into their own courses, with support from workshop facilitators and fellow participants.
Space is limited and the workshop is open to faculty from any institution. If you are interested in joining us, please register by filling out this brief form.
