Are you an educator interested in teaching ecological concepts and data skills using hands-on data activities? NEON teaching modules include lesson outlines, curated datasets, and data skills activities to teach essential data skills and ecological concepts.
Open Educational Resources on QUBES Hub
Open Educational Resources (OERs) are freely accessible teaching modules, data sets, and media that enable faculty to easily find and implement data-centered, student-centric materials as needed for their own students. OERs using NEON data or protocols are hosted by the Quantitative Undergraduate Biology Education and Synthesis project (QUBES). NEON-focused OERs are a collaborative effort between scientists from the NEON program and university and college faculty interested in using NEON data. Using the QUBES collaboration and education materials sharing platform, faculty provide OERs using NEON data or protocols for anyone to use or adapt.

NEON Data Education Fellows Faculty Mentoring Networks
NEON Data Education Faculty Mentoring Networks (FMNs) are designed to support faculty interested in working using NEON data in their classroom. NEON Data Education Fellows have completed the NEON Data Education FMN and have shared their new teaching materials as Open Educational Resources for others to use. You can find educational resources using NEON data or protocols produced by faculty in the NEON Data Education Fellows Faculty Mentoring Networks on QUBESHub.
Share Your Teaching Modules Here!
