National Energy Education Summit
Event Tabs Default Post-Event
The Summit is organized by the Council of Energy Research and Education Leaders (CEREL) of the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE).
The Summit will engage energy educators at all levels and students to build, improve, and expand energy education and serve the needs of diverse populations of students and citizens. The Summit will cover what we teach in energy education, how we teach it, how we can collaborate to teach it better, and how we can overcome critical challenges.
The Summit will include organized symposia, contributed presentations, posters and workshops on how to advance various aspects of energy education. We will also hear from leaders in government, business and industry and civil society in plenary sessions.
Dr. Michael E. Webber, Deputy Director of the Energy Institute, Co-Director of the Clean Energy Incubator, Josey Centennial Fellow in Energy Resources, and Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, at the University of Texas at Austin will present the opening keynote at the National Energy Education Summit.
Dr. Webber's television special Energy at the Movies is currently in national syndication on PBS stations, and his massive online course (MOOC) "Energy 101" launched globally in September to over 44,000 students.
Dr. Webber's Keynote will be followed by a multi-sectoral discussion of How to Advance Energy Education in the U.S.
**Scott Sklar, President - The Stella Group
**Dan Kammen, Director, Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory, University of California, Berkeley
**Kristina Johnson, CEO - Enduring Hydro LLC
The remainder of the day will be spent in symposia and discussion sessions that will enable energy educators in K-12, higher education, and informal education to share best practices and develop new partnerships. The Summit will cover what we teach in energy education, how we teach it and how we can collaborate to teach it better, and how we can overcome critical challenges. The agenda will include issues at both the classroom level (content, curriculum and pedagogy) and at the programmatic level (degree and sub-degree programs).
