EDSIN Community Connections

A resource for members to connect with each other based on your interests and expertise. The spreadsheet has three tabs. One (Topics of Interest) captures the topics proposed for discussion via our Slack group with links to notes from those discussions. The other two (Asks/Offers) are meant to offer a way to make requests (I would like help with..) and to let the community know what expertise you can offer (I can help with...). Members are invited to add content to the spreadsheet whenever you have content to add.

3D Printed Automated Weather Station (PAWS)

Accurate and reliable real-time monitoring and dissemination of observations of surface weather conditions is critical for a variety of societal applications.

The US National Weather Service (NWS) International Activities Office (IAO) in partnership with University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR)/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) has started an initiative to develop and deploy low-cost weather instrumentation in sparsely observed regions of the world.

Instrumentation is being designed using innovative new technologies such as 3D printers, Raspberry Pi computing systems, and wireless communications.

B(ui)LDS: Biological, Universal, and Inclusive Learning in Data Science

An EDSIN partner focused on the exchange of ideas and resources supporting biological and environmental data science education, grounded in practices of universal design for learning and inclusive pedagogy. As part of our commitment to accessible, affordable student-driven education that connects learners to a larger world outside of their classrooms, and inspires them to be transformative; we promote the creation and use of Open Educational Resources (openly licensed learning materials), and the incorporation of Open Pedagogy and Open Science into our teaching practices.

STEM Inclusive Teaching Practices Webinar Series: Episode One

Episode One was a conversation with Bryan Dewsbury (University of Rhode Island) one of the authors of the CBE-LSE Inclusive Pedagogy guide moderated by Carrie Diaz Eaton. We talked with him about inclusive teaching practices, and he answered questions about implementation in the STEM classroom. We appreciate that all of our personal and professional lives have been disrupted by the pandemic, so we will also spend time talking about how to think about inclusion in the times of COVID-19.

Universal Design for Learning Guidelines

The UDL Guidelines are a tool used in the implementation of Universal Design for Learning, a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn. Learn more about the Universal Design for Learning framework from CAST. The UDL Guidelines can be used by educators, curriculum developers, researchers, parents, and anyone else who wants to implement the UDL framework in a learning environment. These guidelines offer a set of concrete suggestions that can be applied to any discipline or domain to ensure that all learners can access and participate in meaningful, challenging learning opportunities.

Academic Data Science Alliance

The Academic Data Science Alliance (ADSA) was launched in May 2019 to provide an independent national resource network for academic data science leaders, practitioners, and educators to connect and exchange ideas, and to advance the uptake of data science best practices in higher education. ADSA seeks to support university researchers in their efforts to learn, use, and teach data-intensive tools and responsible applications. Our ultimate goal is to bring about the institutional changes needed to integrate data science into university research and training. By building networks of academic data science practitioners (including faculty, students, staff, and administrators), ADSA enables better sharing of knowledge, ideas, and lessons learned.
