Using Time Series Data in the Classroom

Dax Soule, Queens College
Glenn Kroeger, Trinity University
Registration deadline: March 4

Lesson plans focused on time-series data present a number of practical challenges for educators. Student computers will often present a range of operating systems and software versions which can create friction and frustration for both instructors and students. Seismic data creates a special set of challenges because of the size of many data sets and the need for generally sophisticated analytical techniques to produce and interpret results.

This webinar will discuss these challenges and present potential solutions. First, we will demonstrate Seismic Canvas, a downloadable waveform display and printing application that offers significant exploration and analysis functionality. Second, we will discuss ways that cloud computing can used to create predefined environments to eliminate the challenge of installations and environment setup on a local machine.

The Project EDDIE - Earth and Ecosystems initiative is an NSF IUSE project with the goals to 1) Develop a suite of flexible modular curricular materials, using large publicly available online datasets, that contribute to improved student quantitative reasoning; 2) Develop a community of faculty members engaged with materials and professional development designed to foster pedagogical orientation favoring open inquiry with large datasets; and 3) Determine what mechanisms contribute to shifts in instructors’ pedagogical orientation towards inquiry-based teaching.
