To receive the ESA Education Scholar title, participants are expected to
- Be an active participant for the entirety of the network
- Implement 1 or 2 of the selected TIEE modules in your Spring 2020 course(s)
- Share your final products to the QUBES Hub and make a post about your implementation on EcoEd Digital Library
To accomplish this goal, you must:
Engage with the other participants through the kick-off webinar, working group meetings and the online discussion forum
Implement 1 or more modules as planned
Post responses to assignment prompts in the forum
Post a reflection of your implementation in the forum
Submit bio and profile photo according to specifications
Submit a reflection of your experience in the program to ESA
Faculty selecting only 1 module should implement a substantial portion of the module. Faculty selecting 2 modules may implement a smaller portion of each module. You may choose to implement the modules in separate courses (e.g. one module in your intro bio course and the other in your senior level ecology course). Additionally, all faculty must adapt and implement some portion of the Data Management module.
Share your final products to the QUBES Hub and make a post about your implementation on EcoEd Digital Library
We ask that you share your teaching materials (teacher notes, curriculum materials, assessments, etc.) on the QUBES Hub site. We also ask that you post a short comment about your implementation to the EcoEd Digital Library (EcoEdDL) where the original TIEE modules are stored (see here for examples from last year's Data Discovery participants). More detailed instructions on this process will be posted in mid-March.
Upon completion, all TIEE modules selected by Data Access FMN participants will be flagged in EcoEdDL as resources where adaptations with inclusive pedagogies are available.
We understand that faculty themselves are a diverse group and are committed to our FMN being an inclusive, supportive experience for participants while they develop inclusive lessons for their students. Please contact the group leaders with any questions about how to best support your success in participating and completing the FMN.
