- Join the Pre-Rendezvous Review Camp
Have you registered for the upcoming Earth Educators' Rendezvous? If so, join the pre-Rendezvous Review Camp!
Volunteers are needed for a one-day "Review Camp" to help peer review the collections of submitted teaching activities from InTeGrate and other NAGT sponsored programs on Sunday, July 12, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. We seek reviewers from across the disciplines who can evaluate the content and pedagogical quality of InTeGrate's contributed collections We will select 25 volunteers from those who apply. For this important service, InTeGrate will provide a $500 stipend that will help to offset your travel and accommodations.
- Interested in learning more about how to incorporate sustainability into your curriculum?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
With eight billion people inhabiting a finite planet, living sustainability is a human imperative in the 21st century. Students understand this, and many come to their study of the Earth seeking authentic engagement with sustainability while also increasing the connection of their knowledge to societal needs.
- Interested in learning more about how to incorporate InTeGrate materials into your curriculum?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
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.
- Interested in learning more about how to increase diversity in the sciences?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
Successfully meeting global environmental and resource challenges requires science students from diverse backgrounds who are prepared for jobs ranging from petroleum geologist to sustainability business consultant. To educate this workforce requires that we attract diverse students into the STEM sciences, support them fully in our programs, and assist them as they transition into the workforce.
- InTeGrate is Pleased to Announce the Publication of a New Teaching Module: Living on the Edge: Building Resilient Societies on Active Plate Margins
Geological monitoring can greatly improve our planning for and response to catastrophic events such as earthquakes and volcanoes. In light of recent tragic events in Nepal, this teaching module provides timely instruction for students to personally experience that geoscience is a complex, interdisciplinary effort with real-world implications.
