Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 11, 6:07 AM

This interactive website allows you to explore climate change from the following perspectives:

* By region (and it is global so you click on the location you want to begin)

* By theme (and there are seven themes):

   - Food Security

   - Food Emissions

   - Climate impact on production

   - Climate impact on people

   - Adaptation

   - Mitigation

   - Policy and Finance

Quoting from Larry Ferlazzo's post Big Facts is "intended to provide a credible and reliable platform for fact checking amid the range of claims that appear in reports, advocacy materials and other sources. Full sources are supplied for all facts and figures and all content has gone through a process of peer review."

This is an open access resource. Much more information may be found at the site. (And think about checking out Larry Ferlazzo's post at http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/2014/02/08/very-very-impressive-new-interactive-site-on-climate-change/

Mary Starry's curator insight, October 30, 2013 5:18 PM

Many pharmacy colleges are using problem-based learning as a core teaching tool throughout their curriculum. Others have individual faculty working with the concepts in just their own courses. Hopefully this toolkit will provide new ideas and insights for those who are not ready to fully endorse problem-based learning, but would like to try out some aspects of it in their large class formats.
