Short Courses



The National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC) is dedicated to educating about socio-environmental (S-E) synthesis as a research approach and to teaching the core concepts and competencies necessary to understand, research, and address S-E problems. To this end, we offer several short courses targeted at building capacity for research and teaching of S-E synthesis:
Project Titlesort descending Year Funded Principal Investigator
Bayesian Modeling for Ecological & Social Scientists

   

2014 Tom Hobbs, Colorado State University, Mary Collins, SESYNC
Bayesian Modeling for Socio-Environmental Data

  

2015 Tom Hobbs, Colorado State University, Mary Collins, SUNY-ESF, Christian Che-Castaldo, University of Maryland
Computational Summer Institute 2014

Research into the complex problems of human–environment interactions requires managing, analyzing, and visualizing large and/or diverse data sets.

2014 Mary Shelley, SESYNC, Mike Smorul, SESYNC, Nicholas Magliocca, SESYNC
Computational Summer Institute 2015

   

2015 Mary Shelley, SESYNC, Mike Smorul, SESYNC, Nicholas Magliocca, SESYNC, Philippe Marchand, SESYNC, Kelly Hondula, SESYNC
Interactive Visualization Tools for Socio-Environmental Data

The future of user interfaces for data analysis is in the direction of larger, higher resolution screens, which present perceptually-rich and information-abundant displays.

2013 Joseph JaJa, SESYNC, Mary Shelley, SESYNC, Mike Smorul, SESYNC
Software Carpentry Boot Camp

Teaching Socio-Environmental Synthesis with Case Studies 2013

Preparing our students to tackle the urgent and complex environmental problems we face is a critical challenge facing higher education. Problems such as global climate change, water resource management, and sustainable development are dynamic and complex problems that require transdisciplinary and collaborative approaches to solve.
