Video/ Microlecture: Climate Change in the Biology Classroom

A video lecture by Rahul Chopra, TROP ICSU and IISER Pune on climate change educational resources that Biology teachers can use in their classrooms. These educational resources integrate climate change understanding with the core curriculum in Biology. This video lecture is part of an online e-learning course (MOOC) titled ‘Climate Change: A Guide For Teachers Of All Disciplines’ developed  by the National Resource Centre (NRC) on Climate Change at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune as part of the Annual Refresher Programme in Teaching (ARPIT), Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India.

This video lecture presents several lesson plans and teaching tools that Biology teachers can use to teach topics in their discipline using climate related activities, case studies and examples. It also includes discussions on the use of digital pedagogy for effective classroom instruction. This lecture presents how Biology teachers can teach topics such as Biodiversity, Species and Speciation, Species Distribution and Species Habitats, Range Shift, Survival Skills, Phenology, Phenophases, Leaf-out, Flowering and Bud Burst, Sex Determination, Human Health, Epidemiology, Vector borne Diseases, Microbes, among others.
