MARGINS Data in the Classroom
Research associated with the MARGINS program has produced large amounts of data relating to various aspects of Earth's continental margins. MARGINS Data in the Classroom is an effort to facilitate including that new data and research in undergraduate geoscience education. Through a series of workshops, researchers and educators have collaborated in the creation of a body of teaching activities called Mini-Lessons which are learning materials that repurpose data and resources developed through MARGINS for use in examining earth processes in undergraduate classrooms from a multidisciplinary perspective.
- What are Mini-Lessons: Learn more about the aims and characteristics of the mini-lessons.
- Mini-Lesson Collection: Browse through the set of mini-lessons that have been contributed.
- Submit a Mini-Lesson: Share a mini-lesson of your own to the collection.
- Assessing Mini-Lessons: Provide feedback on mini-lessons in the collection.
