Building Community in SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations

Brian Winkel, Jessica Libertini, and Karen Bliss

July 19-25, 2015

Helena, Montana

REGISTRATION FEE: $325 PER PERSON ($400 FOR REGISTRATIONS RECEIVED AFTER JUNE 7, 2015) 

SIMIODE is a web-based community, combining the benefits of online-learning communities, teacher repositories, problem-based and inquiry-based learning, and technology into a web-based environment for the teaching and learning of differential equations through mathematical modeling. This workshop is for faculty who want to teach differential equations using the SIMIODE community. During the preparatory component participants will join the SIMIODE community at www.simiode.org and experience Modeling Scenarios from a student viewpoint, Discussion Activities about important issues, and Teacher Groups for developing materials. During the onsite component participants will have opportunities to engage as student groups, to realize the potential of SIMIODE, and to share reactions, experiences, and aspirations for engaging students. Colleagues will work in groups to begin the process toward publishing in SIMIODE. After the workshop activities/conversations will continue through SIMIODE’s web features (e.g., Discussions, Projects, Newsletter) as PREP participants form their own special group inside the SIMIODE Teachers Group.
