Active Learning Strategies for Geoscience Teaching

Please note: This workshop has already taken place.

11 May 2012 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town, Albuquerque, New Mexico

In conjunction with the GSA Rocky Mountain Section 64th Annual Meeting in Albuquerque, 9-11 May 2012


Supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. No workshop fee.


This half-day workshop will help college faculty and secondary-school teachers in the Earth sciences to introduce active-learning strategies into predominantly lecture-based classes. Participants will be introduced to a schema for developing their own materials, and will have an opportunity to develop and review such activities. These will be collected for inclusion on the On the Cutting Edge website. Participants will leave the workshop with the pedagogical foundation and in-class learning resources they need to better engage their students.


Workshop Convener
