GLG 111 - The Dynamic Earth part of Cutting Edge:Introductory Courses:Courses
This course is being revised as part of a 2-year university-funded project entitled "Developing, Implementing, and Assessing Active-Learning Modules for 100-Level Geology Foundation Courses." The innovation we are developing is a modular compilation of teaching resources for our introductory courses, facilitating department-wide adoption of active-learning approaches. We are incorporating established teaching strategies to achieve learning outcomes framed around the scientific method, with in-class cooperative learning and problem solving, and out-of-class vocabulary building and data analysis. Ultimately, we seek improved student achievement, critical thinking abilities, and satisfaction with learning.
