Feedback form is now closed.
How can we make LTER data more available and useful to K-16 educators and students? Scientists, educators and information managers are invited to this session organized jointly by the LTER Education Committee and the Ecological Data Initiative (EDI). We will summarize current practices and educational use of LTER data . Small groups then will discuss 1) identifying important, significant and distinctive LTER datasets, 2) Structuring of datasets for maximum accessibility and use, 3) potential guidelines or templates for dataset composition, structure and documentation for non-scientists, and 4) mechanisms for promotion and use. The session will end with a discussion of opportunities for future collaboration between LTER network members.
