This module uses the Project Eddie Module Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data developed by Heard, M. J. (2023) to create a deeper understanding of big geospatial data and volunteered geographic information (VGI) by embedding and Implementing the Project EDDIE Module on Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data or Other Project Eddue Modules into a cross-cutting curriculum for undergraduate students. Students in the upper-division courses completed the module while adapting it for a campus and community Global Citizen Science Month and Earth Day activity.  

Description

 

This module uses the Project Eddie Module Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data developed by Heard, M. J. (2023) to create a deeper understanding of big geospatial data and volunteered geographic information (VGI) by embedding and Implementing the Project EDDIE Module on Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data or Other Project Eddue Modules into a cross-cutting curriculum for undergraduate students. Students in the upper-division courses completed the module while adapting it for a campus and community Global Citizen Science Month and Earth Day activity.  

Notes

I used the Project Eddie Module Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data developed by Heard, M. J. (2023) to create a deeper understanding of big geospatial data and volunteered geographic information (VGI) by embedding and Implementing the Project EDDIE Module on Assessing the Risk of Invasive Species Using Community Science Data in Global Citizen Science Month and Earth Day events as a cross-cutting curriculum for undergraduate students. Students in the upper-division courses completed the module while adapting it for a campus and community citizen science month activity. The pre-existing module gave structure and scaffolding to develop deeper geospatial and geography context. For each pre-existing module goal presented, I added a geographic information science component, any necessary skills needed such as using available QGIS training/certification, and geospatial reflection. Further, I was able to incorporate regional geography into the module through the topic of invasive species mapping.
