MetEd - Space Weather Basics, 2nd Edition
This module presents an overview of space weather processes, their impacts on Earth and human activities, and the technologies used for forecasting space weather events. The module goal is to provide NWS forecasters a basic understanding of space weather and the operations of NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC). It will be of interest to a general audience as well.
This collection contains the teaching materials I used for designing the Freshman Science Seminar Mathematics 190 - A Climate of Uncertainty at UNC-Chapel Hill Fall 2013. This collection is maintained as a reference for other instructors interested in teaching about climate change using open curriculum. I made extensive use of the training modules provided by MetEd to utilize a "flipped classroom" approach. Traditional lecturing was largely replaced by assigning the training modules in this collection for homework and having my students send me their quiz scores. In class, I utilized a mix of "read and report" group presentations, discussions, roleplays, and modelling exercises on laptops. I encourage others to build and improve on the ideas I had for this course, and to contact me with questions related to the materials and course design.
