This workshop capitalizes on the growing trend to introduce active learning into predominately lecture classes in the geosciences. Many faculty are interested in such methods, but do not know how or where to begin. This half-day workshop will introduce faculty to a schema for developing their own materials and will provide an opportunity to develop and review such activities, which will be collected for inclusion on the Cutting Edge Web site. Participants will leave the workshop with the pedagogical foundation and in-class learning resources they need to better engage their students.

Workshop Convener

David Steer, National Association of Geoscience Teachers, University of Akron
