The Montana Institute on Ecosystems has partnered with MSU's National Teachers Enhancement Network to develop a three-credit online graduate course for teachers called "Plant and Animal Response to a Changing Climate." The Earth Sciences course runs October 14 through December 8 and is designed for high school and community college instructors who want to increase their knowledge of how ecosystems are responding to changes in the climate system. The course also provides information that can be used to develop class activities about how climate change is impacting plants and animals.
The instructor is Dave McWethy, faculty member of the Institute of Ecosystems and assistant research professor in the Department of Earth Sciences as Montana State University.
Tuition for the course is $270. Four scholarships are available to Montana tribal college faculty and high school teachers who serve reservation communities in Montana; scholarships will cover all but $50. The application deadline is October 9.
