Climate Change Continuing Education Program for Faculty: CAMEL

Climate Change Continuing Education Symposium for Faculty

The National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE), Council of Environmental Deans and Directors (CEDD) and the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC)  invite you to participate in a series of weekly webinars that will introduce you to exciting resources for teaching about climate change science and solutions that are located on the CAMEL (Climate Adaptation and Mitigation E-learning) web portal (www.CAMELclimatechange.org).

NCSE will provide a “digital badge” of participation to registered faculty members.

 

Each webinar will feature a faculty member discussing a teaching module or exercise and how to use it in your teaching. The modules to be discussed are designed for undergraduate students, primarily at an introductory level.
