  1. What DLESE does for undergraduates Katy Gingerginger@ucar.edu Marianne Weingroffmarianne@ucar.edu

  2. Katy – meteorologist, instructional designer, & digital librarian • Undergraduate: choosing science (meteorology) as a career • Graduate school: careers other than research and forecasting • Professional employment: What I do now

  3. www.dlese.org • Supported by the National Science Foundation • Offers free access to quality online learning materials (tutorials, lesson plans, visuals, data) • The geoscience member library of the National Science Digital Library

  4. Supports a broad audience of educators and learners: K-12, university, informal education (museums), the public www.dlese.org

  5. What does DLESE offer? Learning resources about the Earth System • Tutorials, simulations, data visualizations, lab activities, etc. • Collections about specific topics (COMET for meteorology)

  6. DLESE may be useful to you… • If you are a student, TA, or teacher looking for good online resources • If you develop an educational resource • If you are looking for jobs, workshops, conferences, etc.

  7. If you are looking for good resources Library of 12,000 educational resources searchable by: • Topic • Educational level • Resource type • Collection • Educational standard • www.dlese.org

  8. If you are looking for good resources

  9. A simulation

  10. http://serc.carleton.edu/research_education/katrina/keytopics.htmlhttp://serc.carleton.edu/research_education/katrina/keytopics.html A portal

  11. A tutorial

  12. How do resources get into DLESE? • Users suggest resourcesthat they like We review them & add (‘catalog’) them into DLESE http://www.dlese.org/suggestor/index.jsp

  13. How do resources get into DLESE? • Users with many resources create a collection Submit collection to DLESE for evaluation

  14. DLESE is more than a library of resources

  15. DLESE is more than a library of resources

  17. If you plan to be a TA or professor http://serc.carleton.edu/introgeo/index.html

  18. If you plan to be a TA or professor Preparing for an Academic Career in the GeosciencesJuly 27-30, 2006, Stanford University, Stanford, CA Early Career Faculty Workshop: Teaching, Research, and Managing Your CareerJune 7-12, 2006, College of William and Mary Designing Effective and Innovative Courses in the Geosciences May 31-June 4, 2006, College of the Siskiyous Teaching Public Policy in the Earth SciencesApril 20-23, 2006, American Geophysical Union http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/workshops.html

  19. Adding DLESE search to a website Search over your areas of interestPre-formed searchesIt’s in your interface – looks just like your site

  20. Our questions for you… How do you use the internet for your classwork? Do you have trouble finding good online resources? Have you ever used a digital library? What services could a digital library provide that would be helpful?

  21. Marianne – instructional designer • Am the project lead/instructional designer – run the project and figure out HOW to teach the material • Work with staff meteorologist and subject matter experts from around the world who provide the content and work with the ID to write the ‘script’ • Work with graphic artists, who create the graphics and animations • Hand over the materials to the programmers and testers

  22. ASMET project • EUMETSAT sponsors a team of meteorology instructors and me (ID) to create CD- based and online modules that help forecasters improve their forecasting skills by making better use of satellite data • Ultimate goal: To help African farmers know when to plant, help transportation industries (planes, ships…), etc. • Modules are used by: • RMTC instructors to augment their teaching • Forecasters as self-paced learning in their offices • International work is fascinating!
