New Online Short Courses Focus on Transdisciplinary Research
The Transdisciplinary Environmental Science for Society (TESS) initiative at the University of Arizona has developed a set of online professional development short-courses, to equip future generations of researchers, practitioners, political leaders, and educators with the knowledge to actively confront society’s most complex environmental challenges. Many researchers want to apply their research to real-world problems, and decision makers want better access to advances in science. TESS content helps researchers and practitioners to bridge the gap between science and the needs of society. TESS is built for both working professionals and graduate students, with three 4-week online courses that allow participants to work at their own pace. Once each course is completed, participants will receive a digital badge and will be eligible to receive 2 continuing education units per course. Part 2, on Practicing Collaborative Research begins January 25, 2021.
