Campus landscaping by constructing mock geologic outcrops part of SERC Print Resource Collection
David J. Matty
Student learning in the geosciences is enhanced by exposure to geology "in the field," where students put knowledge into practice to solve problems and make interpretations. Nonetheless, ...
Mobile GIS in geologic mapping exercises part of SERC Print Resource Collection
Klauis Neumann, Michael Kutis
We have been developing and teaching the components of mobile GIS in Field Methods courses and will be incorporating them into Structural Geology exercises. Since the bedrock in east central Indiana ...
Seeing the big picture: map use and the development of spatial cognition part of SERC Print Resource Collection
This paper considers the relation between the development of spatial cognition and children's use of maps and models. A new theoretical perspective is presented that takes into account the influences ...
Use of a virtual environment in the Geowall to increase student confidence and perfomrance during field mapping: An example from an introductory-level field class part of SERC Print Resource Collection
Michael M. Kelly, Nancy R. Riggs
Geology students often have difficulty learning the baseline terrain-analysis skills required for success in introductory field geology. Students in the Introductory Field Methods class at Northern ...
Bringing the Field into the Classroom by Using Dynamic Digital Maps to Engage Undergraduate Students in Petrology Research part of SERC Print Resource Collection
Theresa M. Boundy, Christopher Condit
We utilize Dynamic Digital Maps (DDMs) in our undergraduate petrology courses to bring in accessible and exciting volcanic field areas to the students in the class room and to engage the students in ...
