Application deadline: January 7, 2013
This workshop is for undergraduate engineering and geoscience faculty interested in creating a stronger integration of engineering and geoscience for engineering students.
Application deadline: January 21, 2013
Equitable distribution of risks and resources, long a discussion of interest to economists, ethicists and others, now requires an understanding of geoscience topics from natural hazards to ground water hydrology to mineral and energy resources. This workshop will explore how we bring together concepts from humanities, social science and geoscience to develop students' understanding of issues and choices addressing environmental justice.
Geoscience and the 21st Century Workforce: Considering undergraduate programs in the context of changing employment opportunitiesJune 26-28, 2013, Penn State University
Application deadline: February 22, 2013
This workshop will focus on understanding the breadth and depth of employment opportunities for students with geologic understanding and articulating the skills/outcomes that are of interest to employers, particularly for new kinds of jobs where these skills/outcomes are less well defined. We will look at the job prospects for all students, including those at 2YCs.
Partnership Workshop: Teaching Oceanography, from On the Cutting EdgeJune 18-20, 2013, with optional field trips on June 17 and 21, City College of San Francisco
Application deadline: March 1, 2013
This workshop explores effective strategies for teaching introductory undergraduate-level oceanography. Focal points include integrating content from multiple disciplines, improving geoscience literacy, and addressing environmental challenges.
This workshop brought together undergraduate faculty from across the disciplines to share challenges and successful strategies for programs integrating sustainable perspectives and geoscience.
The methods and ways of thinking that are intrinsic to Earth science differ in important ways from the experimental method that is commonly taught in schools as the scientific method. This workshop was for undergraduate faculty interested in integrating explicit teaching about the methods of geoscience into their classroom.
This workshop was for undergraduate faculty from all disciplines interested in a stronger integration of geoscience and other perspectives in teaching sustainability.
Partnership Workshop: Teaching Environmental Geology, from On the Cutting Edge
June 2-6, 2012, Montana State University, Bozeman
This workshop connects with the InTeGrate project by emphasizing how geoscience literacy is integral to environmental challenges. Session topics focused on exploring ways to effectively teach environmental geology in undergraduate Earth science courses.
