Workshop Overview

This workshop has already taken place.

This will be a highly interactive workshop with ample opportunity to engage in discussion about including geodesy content across subject areas, to put geoscience context around your own geodetic exercises, and to apply innovative teaching techniques to 'old' content. You will work with others on an activity from your own course. At the end of the day, we will come to some consensus on which geodesy content should or could be included in undergraduate introductory geology courses.
