Climate Change Science, Communication, and Action Online Course
September 11, 2017 - October 1, 2017
You will learn about basic climate change science, impacts, communication strategies, and actions. You will participate in weekly online discussions and complete short quizzes and compete a final project in which you apply what you have learned to your work (e.g., develop a short plan for an educational program). Plan on an average of 3-4 hours a week of work during the course. We encourage you to form a team of colleagues or friends to take the course together. Course Delivery. Course material will be delivered via video lecture and readings. Course participants may complete assignments alone or with other students. You can access course lectures and readings at any time during the course, but we encourage you to keep up with the assignments for any one week. This course will use the learning management software Canvas for all videos, readings, assignments, and discussions. We will use a closed Facebook group as an optional discussion platform where course instructors and participants can post resources, pose questions, and "meet" others with similar interests.
You will learn about climate change science, communication, and action from experts and apply this knowledge to local climate action projects. You will also have the opportunity to share your ideas and projects with other participants and learn from each other. You can use the materials for proposal writing, program development, and to enhance your career.
Achievement Certificate awarded to those who complete course weekly assignments. Expert certificate awarded to those who complete weekly assignments and final project.
