2017 Rendezvous Activity Review Camp

July 16, 2017, Albuquerque, NM
In association with the third annual Earth Educators' Rendezvous

Application deadline: May 1, 2017

Volunteers will attend a one-day "Review Camp" to help peer review the collections of submitted teaching activities from InTeGrate and other NAGT sponsored programs. The Review Camp will be held prior to the Earth Educators' Rendezvous in Albuquerque, NM, on Sunday, July 16, from 8:30am to 5:00pm. We seek reviewers from across the disciplines who can evaluate the content and pedagogical quality of InTeGrate's contributed collections as well as related activities from other projects. We will select 25 volunteers from those who apply. For this important service, InTeGrate will provide a $500 stipend that will help to offset your travel and accommodations. Stipends will be distributed 4 to 6 weeks after the conclusion of the Earth Educators' Rendezvous. You must be present for the entire camp to be eligible to receive a stipend.

Expectations

Prior to the camp, participants are expected to:

During the camp, participants are expected to:

  • refine their completed reviews
  • complete additional reviews (20 total)

We expect that, on average, each review will take about half an hour, but this will vary according to the scope of the activities. At the review camp the group will deal with any issues that may arise from your reviews, and we will hopefully continue to complete a few more reviews as time allows.

Selection Criteria

The teaching activities to be reviewed cover a range of topics related to teaching about the Earth across disciplines. Reviewers will be selected based on:

  • match of disciplinary expertise to materials in the contributed collection
  • knowledge of research-based practices for design and implementation of teaching activities
