iEarth project funding
iEarth will create a student-centred, innovative learning environment for future Earth system scientists and citizens to meet complex societal challenges and opportunities. This will be done by promoting active learning and real-world problem-solving through a nationally integrated Earth system science education with a global perspective. In iEarth, students and instructors will join forces to renew our Earth system science education.
The iEarth Centre of Excellence will function as an incentive and motivation to develop teaching and learning cooperation across departments and universities, engage students in improving their learning environment, collect data, to develop teaching and learning in geoscience and promote SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning), according to the iEarth vision and progress domains.
For a period of 5 years there will be two calls every year.
