Summary

Addressing the inherent challenges of climate change means building a climate literate citizenry. Educational efforts will require new curriculum elements and delivery systems, characterized by a climate change curriculum that is imperative, integrative, and interdisciplinary. Our project seeks to create new courses and public education resources focused on global climate change science with a particular emphasis on a meteorological perspective. A hypothesis central to the curriculum development is that a one credit web-based course provides essential ingredients can serve as the basis for further organizing a variety of credit and non-credit undergraduate, graduate student, and continuing professional education programs. Additional programs including a series of short videos available to the public on selected topics from the one credit course and tied with current events will reach a broader audience, and a three credit web-based course can provide greater breadth and depth of content.
