Critical, emerging problems necessitate finding new ways to study the environment. To this end, technology innovators must school researchers in an array of emerging technologies and teach them how to apply such technologies to their work. Two research projects took on this challenge, creating successful workshops and a virtual seminar designed to provide problem-based instruction. Here, project leaders evaluate their efforts and assess their activities, outcomes, and lessons learned.
