MSU offers online course on Montana Climate Assessment
BOZEMAN — Montana State University Academic Technology and Outreach and the Montana Institute on Ecosystems have developed a free online educational module that helps citizens learn about key information from the Montana Climate Assessment. The Montana Climate Assessment is a scientific document that describes past and future climate trends that affect different sectors of the state’s economy. The interactive experience allows users to explore three key aspects of Montana’s climate — agriculture, forests and water resources — as well as general information about climate science.
The module is self-paced and takes about two to two-and-a-half hours to complete. Participants can access the course from any personal computer with broadband Internet access and can return to it at any time. The module also includes short self-assessments for those who wish to test their knowledge.
The online module is free. For $25, Montana teachers can earn Office of Public Instruction renewal units, or working professionals can earn Continuing Education Units.
