This one-day workshop at the American Geophysical Union Meeting is designed for faculty who are interested in increasing their use of inquiry-based approaches employing on-line global datasets to teach Earth processes. The workshop will feature leaders who work extensively with on-line global data either in their research or their courses. Topics covered by the workshop will include: 1) strategies for engaging introductory students with data sets; 2) using inquiry to develop conceptual understanding; 3) managing data, computers, students, and products; 4) techniques for evaluating student learning in this setting. Examples will be drawn from across the Earth system. There is a 20 person limit and $30 registration fee. Registration is available online.
Conveners: Cathy Manduca (Carleton College), Dave Mogk (Montana State University), Alex Moore (Cornell University).
