Webcast of the 'Energy 101' Course Framework
Energy 101: A Model Interdisciplinary Higher Education Course for Teaching the Fundamentals of Energy
On April 10th, the Department of Energy and its collaborators held a live Webcast on "The Energy 101 Course Framework." The presentation, webcast and resources will be available below.
The Energy 101 framework is part of the Energy 101 initiative, a DOE-led effort to support the creation of a peer reviewed, multidisciplinary, undergraduate level, energy fundamentals course framework, and is the product of collaboration between the project partners and their discourse with energy education experts. The webinar was for educators, administrators, and other interested parties who would like to learn about the Energy 101 course framework and how their institutions can get involved in this effort, as well as how the framework has been used in the development of an ongoing pilot course at the University of Maryland.
Collaborators working with the Department of Energy on this initiative include the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, Oak Ridge Associated Universities, the University of Maryland, Harford Community College, Cecil Community College and the Environmental and Energy Studies Institute.
