Building off the 4 successful workshops offered at the 2011 and 2012 GSA meetings, this 2013 series will offer another set of four popular and relevant topics in undergraduate teaching: geoscientific thinking, climate, sustainability and energy. Each ½-day session will provide concrete examples and strategies you can bring to your classroom.
Registration Deadline: October 25, 2013

Bringing Active Learning into Your Classroom
December 10, 2013, 1:00-5:00 PM - In conjunction with the American Geophysical Union Meeting, San Francisco, CA
Leaders: Anne Gold and Sara Harris
An important strategy for improving student engagement and understanding of complex, controversial or misunderstood topics is to use active learning methods. This half-day workshop will provide opportunities to learn specific techniques for using active learning and immersing students in their learning. Participants will have hands-on time using various tactics and will emerge with a set of resources that they can apply to their own classrooms.

Traveling Workshops

Traveling Workshop Programs bring national leaders in geoscience education to your campus or regional event.
Application deadlines: November 15, 2013 and January 15, 2014. Late applications will be accepted for as long as funding is available.

InTeGrate and NAGT are joining forces to enhance the Traveling Workshop program. As part of this process, we invite you to recommend new workshop leaders. We are looking for those who stand out as strong leaders who can help departments and programs learn from experiences across the country, apply them to their own context, and craft a plan for moving forward.


Ongoing Projects

Classroom Observation Project
Cutting Edge is sponsoring a research project to observe geoscience teaching in classrooms across the US. This project makes use of the Reformed Teaching Observation Protocol (RTOP). You can find out more information on the website about observing a class or volunteering to have your class observed.
