The CAMEL (Climate Adaption Mitigation E-Learning) project aspires to create an online learning community which will generate and use high-quality curricular materials about climate change and climate change solutions. This work is being developed in partnership with NCSE’s Encyclopedia of Earth. This study is funded by the National Science Foundation, Award 0950396.
CAMEL will include: a web-based portal for faculty to share educational materials, strategies, and practices; accessible, vetted materials on a range of climate change and climate solutions topics that can be used across a range of disciplines; and activities to foster and support larger networks of climate change educators in colleges and universities.
Our purposes for this Needs & Assets survey are twofold: In order to develop and refine CAMEL, we need to learn more about you, your climate-change teaching, what you need from CAMEL, and whether and how you might contribute to it. We expect to use your contact information to follow-up with you individually and privately for those purposes. In order to complete the CAMEL project evaluation, we need to understand what types of people and range of institutions and organizations we have been able to reach at this early stage of the project.
For the evaluation reports by the CAMEL evaluator, your answers will not be reported in any way that may identify you individually; they will be aggregated with answers from other respondents. Filling out this form should take about about 20 minutes, depending on how much you want to tell us about your needs and interests.
Thank you for your advice and information!
