The LTER Network makes data available online with as few restrictions as possible so it can contribute to discovery and learning in new ways. The goal of this workshop is to promote and support the use of LTER data beyond its original purpose. During this workshop, we will present examples of ways LTER sites are addressing this goal, including a professional development program for K-12 teachers who are supporting students in exploring, analyzing, and summarizing LTER data (LUQ), the lterdatasampler package which features data samples and vignettes amenable to teaching a variety of concepts and methods in undergraduate/graduate-level introductory data science courses, and an afterschool program that utilizes a time series of penguin population data (PAL). We will break into small groups for discussion about mechanisms for promotion and use of LTER datasets for education and broader impacts and to identify promising opportunities for future collaboration around this topic.
