Middle and secondary teachers from across the U.S., including Puerto Rico, participated in a Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) project held earlier this month on UT Tyler’s main campus.
The “From Learning to Research” project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and led by the GLOBE Program Office at the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) in Boulder, Colo. The GLOBE International Division, a UCAR-GLOBE Satellite Office located on the UT Tyler campus, in collaboration with the UT Tyler Ingenuity Center, hosted the workshop.
Participants will receive an estimated 30 hours of customized professional development during summer 2011 and the 2011-12 school year designed to assist them in learning software, science content and pedagogy necessary to implement inquiry-based, technology-facilitated student research projects focused on climate and Earth science.
GLOBE offers a cross-curricular approach to the study of science, mathematics and technology in conjunction with geography, social studies, languages and the arts. For more information, visit GLOBE International Division at UT Tyler.
