ED 697 STEM and Society: Field Study Abroad

(3 credits)
This is a graduate interdisciplinary inquiry- and problem-based course designed to introduce teachers to the synergistic and symbiotic relationships between society and the environment. Specifically, teachers will study the principal Earth constituents (e.g., rocks, air) and useful materials (e.g., ores, fossil fuels); subsequent demands, shortages and exploration of alternatives; and effects of surface and subsurface processes (rivers, estuaries, oceans, volcano, and earthquakes) that act individually or concomitantly to create contemporary environmental issues such as water supply shortage, ozone layer depletion, contamination of local land and water resources, increase in temperatures (water, land and air), and geological hazards.

IMPORTANT: Students must have current background checks documents on file with the School of Education. (See Background Checks)

Prerequisite: ED694, ED695, ED696, ED698
