Workshops and Events
In June 2014, Colorado School of Mines will host the 3rd Biennial Structural Geology and Tectonics Forum. This Forum will provide an informal and interactive venue for discussing important frontiers, new ideas, and current research in structural geology and tectonics. The Forum will also provide opportunities to discuss effective teaching of structural geology and tectonics, including integrating research with teaching. The Forum is aimed at professional geologists but will welcome advanced graduate students as well.
What are the grand challenges, leading edge ideas, and frontiers in structural geology, geophysics, and tectonics? How can we teach these ideas effectively in undergraduate courses? What innovative strategies can we use to integrate structural geology, geophysics, and tectonics in the courses that we teach for majors? What role can GIS and GPS analysis play in teaching these disciplines? This workshop was an exciting collaborative effort that addressed these and related issues in order to help faculty teach undergraduate structural geology, geophysics and tectonics more effectively.
