Announcement of professional education and pre-university offers fall 2022
The Columbia School of Climate is pleased to announce our return Professional learning And Pre-university Programs Fall 2022. Taught by leading experts and scientists in their fields, these programs allow learners to understand the science behind the headlines and accelerate individual educational and career goals. Fall 2022 sessions will continue remotely via Zoom.
Both our professional learning and pre-academic sessions are delivered in small group sessions to provide targeted instruction, personal interactions and networking opportunities with research faculty and peers. All sessions are recorded, allowing participants to adjust their schedule or review past material easily. These opportunities offer the same level of rigor and quality as Columbia University’s degree programs, so participants will experience a high-caliber program no matter where you are in the world. At the end of each workshop, learners receive a certificate of participation.
We hope to see you at an input session to hear more about each workshop directly from the instructors. Attendees who attend the information session will receive a 10% discount to use at registration.
In the meantime, please register for us Vocational training mailing list here and us The pre-university mailing list is here To receive future updates on our offers. Alternatively, please contact the program team with any questions.
particle for direct object Professional learning program It allows working professionals and adult learners to further their knowledge and skills in new subjects without the long-term commitment of a degree program. This program is suitable for people working in a climate- or sustainability-based career who want to gain new skills to enhance their current role, want to explore a career change in the field, or simply a They are lifelong learners who seek new knowledge and experiences. . For Fall 2022, we are offering the following workshops:
Join Roman Web from the Columbia School of Climate Sabin Center for Climate Change Law for a workshop that provides participants with an introduction to the science of climate change detection and attribution—the body of research that examines the link between human activities and climate change—as well as how to use models to develop predictions of water change. and air Come and discuss how climate science is now, and can be in the future, used by government agencies to inform policy and regulatory action on climate change. The workshop will be held from October 18th to November 29th, from 5:30pm to 7:40pm EST, with some exceptions.
Join Simon Mason from the Columbia School of Climate International Research Institute of Climate and Society Investigating how weather and climate forecasts and predictions are made from minutes in advance to centuries in advance. Come and explore how to measure how good (or bad) predictions are, highlight the ways in which predictions can sometimes appear deceptively good, and consider the question of how much trust any one can have. The workshop will be held from October 27th to December 15th, 5:30-8:00 PM EST.
We Pre-university programs For high school students in grades 9-12 (and rising 9th graders) who are interested in extending their learning beyond the classroom and strengthening their knowledge and skills in the areas of climate change and sustainability. Our workshops are structured around real-time conversations, hands-on activities and project-based learning to allow students to gain an introduction to real-world research, ideas and solutions alongside like-minded peers. Our programs take science learning beyond the textbook and allow students to see and experience science in the real world. For Fall 2022, we are offering the following session:
Join Joshua Devincenzo from the Columbia School of Climate National Disaster Preparedness Center For a workshop that is taken through the lens of climate justice. This solutions-oriented workshop will explore gaps and opportunities in disaster recovery around the world to critically examine exacerbating inequalities. With a focus on translating research into practice, learners will explore disaster risk reduction strategies, mitigation and adaptation, social vulnerability, structural barriers to equitable recovery, policy analysis, global disaster preparedness frameworks, and climate impacts on local communities. will check The workshop will be held from October 29th to December 17th, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM ET, with some exceptions.
