PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY FOR UNDERGRADUATE FACULTY

Description: 3-5 undergraduate faculty will be recruited to attend the Heliophysics Summer School. They will 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, and general science courses. During the summer school, 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. Selected faculty must be able to field test these materials during the semester following the summer school.

The goal is for these materials to be submitted to NASA for product review and hosting on NASA repositories.

Examples of previously developed materials:
