In this workshop, EREN partners with NEON and Project EDDIE (Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry & Exploration) to support undergraduate faculty in integrating large ecological datasets into their teaching and research programs.
"The mission of the Ecological Research as Education Network (EREN) is to facilitate collaborative ecological research projects involving undergraduate students and faculty across a wide geographic network and to leverage these projects to enhance student learning while contributing to ecological science. NEON and Project EDDIE are natural partners with this effort: NEON is an excellent source of open-access large ecological datasets across the United States and Project EDDIE supports instructors in developing flexible, data-focused teaching activities.
This workshop is the first in a series of interactive virtual events that are designed to build a collaborative community of educators and researchers who are interested in exploring new approaches, tools and datasets for their classrooms and research labs. All faculty members, regardless of skill level or previous experience with large-scale data analysis, are welcome. Additional interactive virtual workshops will be hosted in 2021-2022 and there will also be an in person meeting in Summer 2022."
