Helping Students Thrive in Geoscience at Two-Year Colleges: Selected Strategies
October 21, 2017 8:30 am - 4:30 pm in Seattle, WA
In Conjunction with GSA's 2017 Annual Meeting
This short course, offered by SAGE 2YC (Supporting and Advancing Geoscience Education in Two-Year College) will focus on selected strategies that support the success of all students within the geosciences. Session topics include building students' science identify, helping students learn to learn (metacognition strategies), evidence-based active learning techniques in face-to-face and online settings, and supporting pathways into the geosciences by infusing career information into your courses and program and supporting transfer as a geoscience major to a four-year program. The short course will include structured activities, presentations, group discussions, and time for reflection and action planning.
You must register for the short-course through GSA Registration.
Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, the SAGE 2YC program is able to partially support faculty from two-year colleges to attend and participate in this short course. If you would like to learn more about this funding opportunity, please access the Stipend Application. Applications must be submitted by July 26.
Workshop Conveners: Norlene Emerson, Univ. of Wisconsin-Richland; Eric Baer, Highline College.
