Interested in learning more about how to incorporate InTeGrate materials into your curriculum?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
Posted: May 8 2015
Two-year college faculty and instructors who want to adopt new materials into their courses are often concerned about the lack of sufficient time. This includes time for them to learn the new materials and class time where they will "fit" new activities into their current course syllabi. InTeGrate (Interdisciplinary Teaching about the Earth for a Sustainable Future) supports the teaching of geoscience in the context of societal issues both within geoscience courses and across the undergraduate curriculum. To this end, InTeGrate classroom modules align with high-impact practices that enhance Earth literacy among college students.
