Place-Based Instruction in Action!

Alaska is one of the most seismically active places on Earth. This online course will introduce educators to various seismology principles and techniques for using data in their classrooms. We look to provide educators with Alaska specific information to tie in a sense of place and investment for Alaska’s students. Each lesson will include videos and hands-on activities that accompany the videos with homework, discussion forum requirements and reflection assignments.

IRIS’s Seismographs in Schools Program serves teachers across the country and around the world using seismic instruments or real-time seismic data in K-16 classrooms.

This is a 2-credit, 500-level professional development course designed for classroom teachers at all levels.  No prior knowledge of seismology or software is required. Course participation is limited to the first 50 registrants. IRIS will have a application process for tuition reimbursement. Applicants who successfully complete the Seismology in the Classroom course will have their fees reimbursed.
