Subject: [iris-bulk] Opportunity to develop undergraduate curriculum
Date: Thu, 12 Jun 2014 09:22:24 -0400
From: Michael Hubenthal <Michael.Hubenthal<at>iris.edu>
Please note the following opportunity to apply for funding to development of undergraduate curriculum materials. IRIS is a sponsor of the InTeGrate program.
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. Learn more...
• 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 major. Learn more...
• modules for introductory geoscience or environmental science on any of six topics integrating geoscience and societal issues. Learn more...
Teams may have three to five members depending on the scale of the proposed materials (module teams are limited to three members). All materials will be published on the InTeGrate website and will be freely available to faculty for educational use. Proposals may come from fully formed teams, from partially formed teams, or from individuals. If you have a proposal idea and are seeking additional team members (or consultants) or if you would like to explore proposals seeking team members, please visit the Seeking Team Members page.
