MARGINS Education Mini-Workshop:
Bringing MARGINS Science to the Classroom
April 5-6, 2007, Arlington, VA
MARGINS has been awarded an NSF Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) grant to develop web-based undergraduate classroom teaching modules, in cooperation with the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College. This workshop will bring together scientists, educators and members of the MARGINS Steering Committee to identify critical content and initiate development of web-based MARGINS "Mini-Lessons" for use in undergraduate teaching. The aim is to engage the MARGINS research and educational community in the generation and testing of multidisciplinary learning materials derived from MARGINS science.
Key goals of the workshop are to:
Workshop participants will be asked to contribute an example of their use of MARGINS data or research in their own teaching to the website and to participate in creation or review of additional teaching materials.
This Workshop is sponsored by the MARGINS Education and Public Outreach program funded by NSF. It will take place after the MARGINS Steering Committee (MSC) Meeting, on April 5-6 in Arlington, VA. Participants will gain insight into the current state of MARGINS science through presentations by MSC members on the four MARGINS Initiatives, and on the varied data repositories and information resources where MARGINS results can be accessed.
We encourage applications from scientists and educators interested in the education and outreach of the MARGINS initiatives to undergraduates. For more information on the Workshop and to apply online visit the Carleton College host server of this program.
Applications due on February 16, 2007.
