College energy 101 curric development webinar

Energy 101- A Framework For an Interdisciplinary Undergraduate Course Teaching the Fundamentals of Energy
Note time is 2-4pm EDT

The 'Energy 101' project collaborators are hosting a webinar detailing the newly released Energy 101 curricular framework.

This webinar is for educators, administrators, and other interested parties who would like to learn about the Energy 101 curricular framework and how their institutions can get involved in this effort, as well as how the framework has been used in the development of an ongoing pilot course at the University of Maryland.

The framework is part of the Energy 101 initiative, a DOE-led effort to support the creation of a peer reviewed, multidisciplinary, undergraduate level, energy fundamentals course framework, and is the product of collaboration between the project partners and their discourse with energy education experts.

The framework is based on the DOE's Energy Literacy Principles and Concepts document and teaches energy from an interdisciplinary perspective in an effort to capture the dynamic role energy plays in our lives -- including relevant scientific, technological and societal aspects. It was designed to challenge college students at two and four-year schools across the country to explore systematically the science and social science behind sound energy decision-making. It will also introduce students at an early point in their college experience to a variety of career choices in energy, as well as supporting the DOE's goals of increasing energy literacy and also builds on DOE's work, through the National Training and Educational Resource (NTER) and other means, to make interdisciplinary, immersive content available for all to use.

Collaborators working with the Department of Energy on this initiative include the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Oak Ridge Associated Universities, the University of Maryland, Harford Community College, Cecil Community College and the Environmental and Energy Studies Institute.
