Professional Development Workshop Descriptions

CESTEM Saturday Workshop Series

Barrier Island Ecology & History Workshop
June 17-18, 2016 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

This course will give teachers a deeper understanding of barrier islands as dynamic ecosystems with rich histories. We will look at how both deterministic and stochastic pressures have worked on these ecosystems over time. The workshop will include field trips to Masonboro and Bald Head Islands and Carolina and Wrightsville Beaches. The main goal of the workshop is to prepare teachers to integrate barrier islands ecology in innovative ways into the current curriculum.

June 28-29, 2016 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

This two-day workshop highlights a wide ranging look at coastal processes including longshore transport, wave energy, erosion, barrier island migration, and ecosystem health as a whole. A discussion of the impacts of storms, storm surge, sea level change, beach re-nourishment, and hardening of the shoreline will also be featured. This workshop will take place in a UNCW classroom as well as in the field. Historical and current data, along with projections for the future will be provided.
