In February, the TROP ICSU team visited Bhutan to facilitate a workshop for teachers and educators. A 2-day workshop for school teachers and university lecturers was conducted in collaboration with the Center for Disaster Risk Reduction and Community Development Studies (CDRR &CDS), College of Science and Technology, Royal University of Bhutan and the Commission on Education and Outreach, International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth’s Interior (IASPEI)—an association of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG), which is a partner of the TROP ICSU project—at Thimphu, Bhutan, on February 14 and 15, 2019.
Sixty-six teachers and educators from various disciplines attended the workshop. The workshop participants were introduced to the usage of digital teaching resources in the classroom and to the idea of integrating climate science/climate change-related topics with existing curriculum. They also provided critical feedback on the existing teaching resources from the pedagogy perspective.
