Workshops and Events
This webinar will showcase the webpages and resources that have been designed collaboratively by SERC and Mathworks to help you explore how teaching with MATLAB can enhance the student learning environment in undergraduate Earth Science and related courses. The webinar will explore common challenges of teaching quantitative skills, focusing on teaching data visualization and data analysis. Three faculty members from across the globe will share teaching activities that address these common challenges, using geoscience examples that utilize MATLAB as a tool.
This workshop was designed to explore how teaching with MATLAB can enhance the student learning environment in undergraduate Earth Science and related courses. The materials that were presented were linked from the workshop program. Also explore your colleagues' thoughts about challenges and opportunities to teaching with MATLAB in the workshop synthesis.
This workshop aimed to help instructors of undergraduate classes develop classroom activities, demonstrations, and research opportunities on topics of current societal relevance and interest using new online resources of geoscience data. These activities will be added to the extensive Cutting Edge online teaching activities collection.
This workshop brought together geoscientists and educators to look at how we currently take advantage of these new tools in undergraduate education, to look at newly emerging opportunities, and to consider what learning science has to say about teaching with these tools.
An illustrated community discussion at the 2003 annual meeting of the Geological Society of Americas. This session was designed to allow the entire GSA community to come together to share and discuss how we use data to help students learn concepts, think scientifically, and develop their skills in making interpretations and communicating conclusions. We invite contributions from throughout the geosciences involving all kinds of data in the full spectrum of approaches to helping students of all ages learn geoscience.
This one-day workshop at the American Geophysical Union Meeting was designed for faculty who are interested in increasing their use of inquiry-based approaches employing on-line global datasets to teach Earth processes.
