This one-day workshop is a follow-up to the Cutting Edge workshop Teaching about Energy in Geoscience Courses held in May 2009 at the University of Wyoming. The workshop will provide opportunities to learn more about energy issues, as well as focus on how we teach about energy and geoscience. Participants will share and discuss current examples, while exploring how we might better integrate energy in geoscience courses and beyond. Workshop participants will also collaborate to create or refine materials for classroom use.
