Geologic Mapping Exercise part of Cutting Edge:Early Career:Previous Workshops:Workshop 2010:Teaching Activities
This exercise is designed to simulate some of the mapping aspects of a basic geological investigation. This mock geological investigation is a good wrap-up exercise because it incorporates a variety of geological concepts such as identifying sediments and rocks, structural geology, and groundwater flow.
Using a 2+2 Agreement and a Simulated Geological Investigation to Improve Student Preparation part of Geoscience in Two-year Colleges:Supporting and Advancing Geoscience Education in Two-Year Colleges:Workforce, Transfer, and Careers:Preparing Students in Two-year Colleges for Careers:Essays
At Vincennes University we have found a number of techniques to be effective in preparing students for the geoscience workforce and/or transitioning to four-year programs. I would like to highlight two of the methods we use to improve student preparation.
