University Curriculum

Faculty Developed Curriculum

Community college faculty from CBBG partner schools participated in a 5-week summer Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program in which they worked with university faculty and graduate student mentors on a biogeotechnics engineering lab project. As part of this experience, they developed an instructional lesson module which they then incorporated into the general competencies for one or more of their courses.  Some community college adjunct faculty presented their instructional module in a colleague’s course as a guest lecturer.

The CBBG education team has also worked with university engineering faculty to develop biogeotechnics instructional modules to be incorporated in their own core courses.  The following resources represent the instructional modules developed for the integration into university science and engineering courses.
