The Plate Tectonics Revolution
Emily Peterman, Bowdoin College
Although only ~40 years old, the theory of plate tectonics provides a global framework to understand such varied phenomena as earthquakes, volcanoes, ocean basins and mountain systems both on continents (e.g. the ...
Plate Tectonics and Tectonic Hazards
John Creasy, Bates College
This is a topical course covering plate tectonics and associated hazards such as eartquakes, volcanic activity, and secondary hazards such as tsunami, landslides, etc. A companion topical course covers surficial ...
John Weber, Grand Valley State University
Global Tectonics is our capstone course. Half of the course is devoted to getting a handle on basic plate kinematics (which is not covered explicitly in any other courses). Half of the course explores topics that ...
David Greene, Denison University
A study of geologic and tectonic processes at the global scale. Major topics include plate tectonic theory and development, plate geometries, processes at plate margins, volcanic arcs, collisional orogenies and ...
John Chadwick, College of Charleston
This course will be taught once per year. It provides an overview of geological and biological processes and of major geological and evolutionary events in Earth's history. It uses lecture and hands-on ...
Science for Non-Scientists
This website hosts all of the materials developed for an undergraduate course called "Science for Non-Scientists." Students enrolled in this course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison showed very significant gains in critical thinking skills, as measured by the Critical Thinking Assessment test, developed at Tennessee Tech University.
Earthquakes and Volcanoes
Ignacio Pujana, University of Texas at Dallas, The
This is an interdisciplinary science course offered in an online format. A flexible approach based on programmed self-instruction, with frequent tests to monitor progress, substitutes for the usual lecture with ...
Global Issues in the Sciences--Living with our Earth: Earth science case studies from the Pacific NW and Himalaya
Beth Pratt-Sitaula, Central Washington University
Seminar style course that explores basic geologic systems through the lens of better understanding natural and manmade catastrophes in the Pacific Northwest and the Himalaya and how we, personally and as societies, ...
