ALTERNATIVAS PARA O ABASTECIMENTO DE ÁGUA
Rating

Este Guia Didático surgiu como produto da Dissertação de Mestrado do Programa de Pós-Graduação de Mestrado Profissional em Rede para o Ensino das Ciências Ambientais – PROFCIAMB, sob o Tema “APRENDENDO COM A ESCASSEZ: ALTERNATIVAS DE USO DA ÁGUA EM EIRUNEPÉ/AM” como atividade prática com os discentes do Ensino Médio do Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia do Amazonas, Campus Eirunepé sobre o abastecimento de água e como as famílias atuam na obtenção deste bem quando não fornecido adequadamente pelo Poder Público.
A construção do Guia Pedagógico surgiu a partir da necessidade dos discentes compreenderem a problemática da da água no mundo. Esta compreensão deve ter como marco inicial, a percepção sobre o abastecimento de água na cidade onde os mesmos moram, compreendendo as condições de captação, abastecimento e uso da água pelas suas famílias. A partir do “local” o discente será capaz de compreender o contexto da água sob o aspecto global.

Advanced Energy Policy
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Energy policy is typically evolutionary as opposed to revolutionary. We can look to historical policies to understand how we've inherited the policies governing our energy use today. But looking backward only tells us part of the story. In the face of climate change, we need to look ahead and instead envision a more revolutionary change to our energy systems and the policies that govern them. This class takes you on that journey to energy policies past, present, and future. We look at the political realities of addressing climate change at various scales of governance and work together to craft our own ideal scenarios of what a responsible energy future will be.

Biogeographic patterns and climate change – a teaching resource for university lecturers – Atlas of Living Australia
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

This case study describes a practical exercise developed for students in the School of Geography and Environmental Science at Monash University. The exercise is based around simple bioclimatic modelling techniques and designed for first-year university students of biogeography, ecology and climatology. It incorporates aspects of past, present and future climates and their impact on species distributions, particularly in Victoria, but could be easily modified to suit any part of Australia. The practical exercise has three main parts: the first is on animal distributions under current and future climates; the second concerns plant distributions in the past and present; and the third part looks at how rare and endangered species may respond to future climate change in alpine environments.

Coastal Processes, Hazards and Society
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Has your attention recently been caught by news of coastal catastrophes such as hurricanes and tsunamis? Do you wonder why so many coastal communities in the world are vulnerable to flooding and other coastal hazards? Have you considered what coastal flood protections cities like Houston and Miami will need in the future to protect their residents? This course will provide a better understanding of these phenomena. We present a global perspective of coastal landscapes, the geologic processes responsible for their formation, and ways that society responds to hazards like sea level rise and catastrophic weather events. You will participate in active learning exercises such as analyzing real-world datasets and applying critical thinking to real-world societal problems while investigating a coastal community.

Driving in Australia outlines the Kangaroo - what it is, a description of the marsupial, where it lives, what it eats and its social and reproductive facts.
In Australia, the kangaroo is a driving hazard. It jumps onto the road unexpectedly and collides with vehicles and motorbikes.
This outlines some basic knowledge of where the collisions might occur and the time of day. It also describes some precautional measures, tips for what to do if a vehicle collides with a kangaroo and then some information about what to do with an injured kangaroo and it's possible still alive offspring or joey.

Much of the general population believes that the energy sources we depend on are perpetual. While people believe that energy use is the culprit for environmental damage, they are not aware of the methods and principles by which energy conversion devices operate. This course will provide you with knowledge and information on the main operating principles of devices/appliances in common use and will help you in making energy efficient and economical choices. The objective of the course is to expose you to energy efficiency in day to day life in order to save money and energy and thereby protect the environment. I hope the information in this course will help you become an environmentally-responsible individual of this Global Village.

Energy Policy
Conditions of Use:

Energy policy sits at the crossroads of science and policy. And now, energy and climate policy are inextricably linked; the policies we choose have very real consequences for our climate. This intersection of science and policy is chaotic and bustles with activity motivated by various competing (and conflicting) interests and factors. We must understand the motivations driving them and bridge the divides between our reliance on fossil fuels and our need to transition to less carbon-intensive and renewable alternatives. While the science and math behind these problems is often fairly straightforward, the politics and behavioral changes are not. Come stand at this busy intersection with us as we navigate toward progressive climate policy alternatives at all scales of governance!

Experiential learning, yes! But...online? at a distance? independent undergraduate research? This capstone course in Energy and Sustainability Policy is a novel approach to exactly this. Each student follows the same overarching structure: a four-part written research report, weekly journals, group discussions, a LinkedIn presence, an in-person presentation and a video submission. Along the way, the student has numerous personal interactions with real world stakeholders and gives an in-person presentation to an interested local audience. Proven over many semesters now, this engaged scholarship model serves senior students well, guiding and building confidence and professional opportunities.

In 2008, Dr. Michelle Soupir joined the Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering department at Iowa State University.  The goal of Dr. Soupir’s research program is to conduct basic research to move us toward more sustainable water systems.  Dr. Soupir uses lab- and field-based research projects to monitor the occurrence, fate and movement of nutrients and microorganisms in surface and drainage water.The information, activities and assessments included in these curriculum modules aim to tell a story.  This storyline will help students learn the basics of denitrification and the nitrogen cycle to make sense of our anchor phenomenon - the Gulf Dead Zone.  Students will learn that local conditions and actions can have a significant impact on global issues.  The activities with which students will engage constitute a meaningful pathway to understanding and are not intended to be used in isolation.  As you make plans for how these modules will be used, carefully consider the connections and interdependence of the activities, which make it difficult to separate the activities and is not advised.Each module consists of two or three activities.  Each activity provides opportunities to develop and use specific elements of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering skills and practice(s) to make sense of phenomena and/or to design solutions to problems.  They also provide students with the chance to use conceptual understanding that spans scientific disciplines and develop deep understanding of core ideas and content.
