The NEON Data Education FMN in spring 2019 had fourteen active participants with two co-facilitators. The faculty participants all adapted existing NEON educational resources or created new educational resources using NEON data. Most faculty were able to implement their modules during the semester, with some faculty preparing new materials for spring semester. 

Participants in this FMN can find additional meeting details here (Group Member only access).
