- Service Learning in the Geosciences: Resources to Engage Students in Projects Within their Community
While service-learning is emerging as one way to give undergraduate students hands-on opportunities, there have been few systematic efforts to examine how service-learning is being used in the geosciences and whether it has a positive impact on students. Read on and learn more from a recent workshop that addressed why service learning is important in the geosciences, provided opportunities for innovation, and compiled resources for teachers to engage students in projects within their communities.
