Heliophysics Summer School: Undergraduate Faculty Participation
Heliophysics Summer School
9-16 July 2014 - Boulder, CO
This is an opportunity for these faculty to work with leading researchers in the field of heliophysics and develop course materials using heliophysics examples to illustrate important concepts in introductory and upper division physics, astronomy or earth science courses, as well as general science courses. During the summer school, recruited faculty will be expected to work with the summer school instructors, other educators and each other to outline and draft teaching materials that they can further develop and test during the school year. A strong evaluation plan will be an important part of the expected outcome of this work. The goal is for these materials to be submitted to NASA for product review and hosting on NASA repositories.
- At least three years of teaching experience. (Already having a connection with heliophysics is not a requirement.)
- Currently teaching physics (preferably electricity & magnetism), astronomy/planetary science, or Earth sciences at the undergraduate level. Community college faculty are encouraged to apply.
- Willingness to work with other faculty and the HSS instructors as a team to develop teaching materials.
