- Energy Efficiency in the Home
The goal of this six-week online course is to educate Hawaii high school environmental science students grades 9-12 on how to find alternative energy solutions in the home. These solutions will reduce energy use in each of four areas; lighting, water heating, large appliances, and reduction of phantom loads.
- Introducing Media Literacy to Undergraduate Students
Despite the pervasiveness of media into all aspects of most peoples’ lives, many people still perceive “media” as only television ads and newspaper articles. The truth is that media is all around us all the time, impacting us in ways we don’t, but should, recognize. This instructional module was designed to introduce undergraduate students to the concept of “media literacy,” or of being aware how ubiquitous a presence media has in our lives.
