Teaching Resources for Students and Instructors

A few months ago, while educators were following their usual routine to perform and conduct classes, COVID-19 emerged abruptly and disrupted everything, calling for a quick transition from face-to-face to online teaching. With limited time available and challenges that every individual faced, hydrology and water resources professors and lecturers had to develop new teaching activities to deliver classes online. To support students and instructors from all institutions around the globe, we provide a collection of freely available teaching courses in the hydrologic sciences.

If you have resources you’d like us to share with others please tweet them at as us (@AGU_H3S) or send them to us under the ‘Contact us‘ page here!
