Building Stronger Departments

Part of the NAGT Traveling Workshops Program

This track of the Traveling Workshops Program brings the knowledge gained from the Building Strong Geoscience Departments project, InTeGrate, and other NAGT-sponsored efforts onto your campus to support conversation and planning by your department as a whole. These workshops offer a menu of interactive sessions fully supported with online resources. All sessions feature presentations, discussions, and action planning.

As a part of the process for hosting a workshop, you identify the length of the event (from one to two days) and choose from the topics we offer those that are of highest interest to your group. We recommend the workshop be used at a retreat or other departmental planning event, with the expectation that the full department will participate. Prior to the workshop, your department will provide us with information about your department and its programs. We will choose a team of two facilitators who will develop a program (see some example programs) from the topics you've identified and will come to your campus to lead the workshop.

These workshops offer several unique opportunities.

Topics and Sessions

All workshops include three Core Sessions that form the foundation of the agenda:

You can expand your workshop agenda by adding optional Elective Sessions. Each Elective Session adds roughly half a day to the length of your workshop.

Workshop Facilitators for 2014-15

Our 2014-15 facilitators come from a broad and diverse range of geoscience disciplines and have great depth not only geoscience education, but also programmatic and administrative experiences. Their individual biographies can be found on the Workshop Facilitators page.
