Lightning presentation and workshop presented at CUAHSI HydroInformatics Conference, 2019. This workshop is offered for hydrology faculty interested in implementing or adapting active-learning, data-driven resources to their educational settings. The workshop aspires to create faculty networking and development opportunities with the overall goal of promoting and reducing barriers against adoption of active-learning resources in hydrology. The workshop will use the recently developed NSF-sponsored HydroLearn platform, along with resources from CUAHSI, HydroShare and other community platforms, to enable participating faculty to develop and share educational resources. The workshop will showcase existing seed modules and will cover best practices in developing student-centered learning activities, including the design of pedagogically-sound learning objectives and assessment rubrics. Faculty who currently teach hydrology-related courses are encouraged to participate, especially those who teach undergraduate or early-level graduate courses. Interested faculty may also be invited to participate in a follow-up funded fellowship program to engage in a semester-long adoption and field testing of the HydroLearn platform and its content. The workshop will be jointly conducted by hydrology faculty along with an expert in education research.
