Course descriptions for teaching geoscientific thinking

These course descriptions were submitted by faculty in preparation for the Teaching the Methods of Geoscience workshop in June 2012. In some cases, participants submitted a supplement calling out the ways in which the course explicitly addressed teaching geoscientific thinking for a course they had previously submitted.

If you would like to add to this collection by contributing a course, please fill out the Course Submission Form or the Course Supplement Form if you wish to supplement a course you have previously submitted.
