Teaching Climate Change Online
Thursday 10 September 2020 - 05:00pm - Thursday 10 September 2020 06:00pm

The pandemic teaching of Spring 2020 was less about being online and more about crisis teaching. With Fall 2020 mostly being online and Winter 2021 classes likely following a similar pattern, we have the opportunity to prepare for online learning with purpose and intent. UC Davis has offered a free, online introductory climate change course for the past several years. During this webinar, Dr. Bloom will discuss creating his climate change course to be entirely online and tips and tricks for online climate change education.

Arnold J. Bloom received his undergraduate degree in Physics from Yale University. He spent several years developing computer models of the spread of air pollution over cities in the USA and Germany. He received a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University, where he also completed a two-semester course in Environmental Legislation at the Law School. He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. He has been on the faculty of the University of California at Davis for thirty years. His publications range from major reviews on the economics of resource allocation in plants to the future of agriculture under rising carbon dioxide levels. He has coauthored textbooks on plant physiology and plant mineral nutrition. Global Climate Change: Convergence of Disciplines derives from a General Education course offered for the past seven years that has grown to an enrollment of three hundred students.
