TROP ICSU is a global project funded by the International Science Council, led by the International Union of Biological Sciences (IUBS) and co-led by the International Union of Quaternary Research (INQUA). The project partners include other international unions, national academies of various countries, national research centers, and United Nations agencies. We collate and curate digital/ICT-based teaching resources that integrate climate studies with curriculum in various disciplines, including Science, Mathematics, Social Sciences, and Humanities. These teaching resources are globally relevant for their science, but locally rooted in their context. Such an integrated approach will introduce examples and case studies from climate science and climate change while enhancing the conceptual understanding of topics in Science, Mathematics, Social Sciences, and other disciplines, iImpart interdisciplinary training that is essential for research and action on climate change adaptation and mitigation. Teaching Tools: Each teaching tool is typically a computer-based tool such as an interactive visualization, a simulator/model, a video micro-lecture, or a classroom/laboratory activity that can be used to teach a topic in the curriculum of a particular discipline with the help of a climate-related example, case study, or activity. Lesson Plans: Each lesson plan consists of a set of teaching tools and a detailed write-up with step-by-step instructions for using these tools to teach a topic in a particular discipline by using climate-related examples, case studies, or activities. In this hands-on interactive workshop, participants will first be introduced to the TROP ICSU project and its teaching resources. Then, the facilitator will guide them through a complete Lesson Plan in a specific discipline (Earth Sciences). They will be introduced to each component of a Lesson Plan and will be guided (in a hands-on session with access to computers/laptops) through the use of the computer-based tools in the chosen lesson plan. The participants will then be invited to provide their feedback on the teaching resources in that Lesson Plan and to provide suggestions on how these could be customized for usage in their classroom.
