Presentation Transcript

  1. Education and Public Outreach – 2013-2018 Proposal Budget and New Initiatives CoCom April 9, 2012

  2. Proposed EPO theme “Bringing Seismology to a Wider Audience” • New Instructors • Articulated online curriculum and professional development • New undergraduates • Targeted undergraduate efforts and Educational Affiliates program • New classrooms • Expand classroom seismology with new sensors, software and support resources • New generation of information consumers • Interactive content for mobile devices • New Collaborations • Coordinated with pan-IRIS themes

  3. Items included in base budget • 5.5 FTE (no reduction from FY13) • Manage internships (student costs covered by REU award) • Web pages and social media • New Educational materials • Teachable Moment slide sets • Online and in-person professional development • Half-time consultant • Animations and videos • Ongoing program costs • Travel, materials, replacement parts and computers, etc • IRIS/SSA Distinguished Lectureship • SACNAS undergraduate student field trip • Active Earth module development and dissemination • Limited publications • Booth at NSTA, GSA and AGU (all only 10 ft)

  4. EPO FY14 Base Budget 13% reduction from FY12 Spending Plan

  5. Cuts required to meet Base Budget – FY14-FY18 • USArray Short Course • TA outreach travel • TA outreach subaward • Educational seismographs • Educational seismograph training workshop • Educational Affiliate travel to IRIS bi-annual workshop • Faculty summer salary for development of undergraduate curriculum • Educational software development (university subaward) • Printing of posters • Significantly trimmed • AGU booth (reduced to minimum 10 ft size)

  6. Additional cuts required for Base Budget FY17-18 • FY17 and FY18 • Half of remaining staff travel • Active Earth module development • FY18 • GSA booth • NSTA booth • Half of remaining AGU booth • Would require sharing with UNAVCO

  7. EPO Program level priorities Ongoing tasks that weren’t included in base budget or in pan-IRIS initiatives

  8. Pan-IRIS initiatives • Most new EPO proposal activities integrate with the pan-IRIS initiatives: • Taming the Internet • Undergraduate Engagement Through Research and Education • Documentation and Publication of Best Practices

  9. Taming the Internet • Modifying existing content and and creating new ways to access IRIS-wide information on all platforms • Key elements: • Device-independent access to content • Mobile devices and apps • Provided via social media, Wikipedia, etc, as well as IRIS web site • Accessing data • Viewing and analysis software • Web Services GUI • On-line curriculum (undergraduate and grades 6-12)

  10. Taming the Internet • Involves close collaboration with DMS • Examples: • Build educational wrappers for DMS data products • Classroom PPTs and instructor guides • IRIS Earthquake Browser • Add other educational features to DMS tool • Web services • SeismicCanvas - Undergrad level waveform analysis • jAmaseis – Simple event location and magnitude • New apps • Seedlink • jAmaseis - 24 hour plots of global stations

  11. Taming the Internet • Online curriculum and professional development • Turn our collection of educational resources into a single, branded product for online learning • Tailored to different levels (years 6-16) • Create pathways between resources • Organizing materials into learning sequences • New web applications • New video, animations • Considerable NSF interest in online learning • Develop expertise for potential RFPs • Closely tied to Undergraduate Engagement initiative

  12. Undergraduate Engagement Through Research and Education • Strong emphasis on providing more resources for undergraduate faculty • Access to data and classroom materials • Reinvigorate Educational Affiliates membership • Two Year Colleges are key target • Travel to IRIS workshop • Sabbatical in seismology travel • Topical workshops • Faculty summer salary for curriculum development • Undergraduate faculty workshop • Collaboration with InTeGrate project • 5 year $10M national undergrad geoscience education program

  13. Documentation and Publication of Best Practices • Co-lead with IDS • Work with other programs to create operational and training materials • Collaborate with new online version of NMSOP? • Outsource writing to technical writer

  14. Pan-IRIS Initiatives Summary – EPO Lead (X $1000)

  15. Spares

  16. Expanded undergraduate focus • Online curriculum and professional development • Leverage IRIS involvement in InTeGrate • Multi-institution national undergraduate geoscience education project led by SERC (5 years, $10 million) • Continue curriculum development started under current Grand Challenges project • Provide summer salary for faculty to develop and improve resources • Provide workshops for college faculty

  17. Expanded undergraduate focus • Reinvigorate Educational Affiliate membership • Key audiences • Community colleges • Highly diverse and significant source of students for 4-year schools • 4-year schools without a seismologist • Targeted workshops • Travel for sabbatical research • Highlight online resources

  18. Expanding classroom seismology • MEMS sensors in every classroom • Arrays as well as single units • Coordination of Quake Catcher and IRIS networks • Classroom seismographs • IRIS software supports multiple educational seismographs • Expanded international collaboration • IRIS software and web data base services are the standard • Educational access to DMS archive • jAmaseis • SeismicCanvas • Seed regional networks to support classroom teachers

  19. New collaborations • NASA • IRIS EPO is part of proposal for Mars seismograph mission (2016 launch) • Data will be be provided to IRIS DMS • American Meteorological Society • Provide workshops at AMS meetings • Create information packets that IRIS seismologists can provide to local meteorologists
