Teaching Hydrogeology in the 21st Century Workshop

July 23-28, 2005
University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE

Join us for an exciting collaborative effort focused on enhancing the teaching of hydrogeology at the undergraduate level. This workshop will bring together college and university faculty who teach hydrogeology to explore a wide variety of topics related to teaching hydrogeology effectively in the classroom, lab, and field. Participants will share exemplary laboratory and classroom activities, discuss course content and curriculum, explore field trips as a catalyst for integrating field and in-class material, and address issues in teaching and learning hydrogeologic concepts and processes.

This workshop will be patterned after the very successful workshops on Teaching Mineralogy (1996), Teaching Petrology in the 21st Century (On the Cutting Edge, 2003), and Teaching Structural Geology in the 21st Century (On the Cutting Edge, 2004). Participants will help to develop an on-line Hydrogeology Teaching Materials Collection similar to the Petrology and Structural Geology Teaching Materials Collections. Instructional materials developed at the workshop will be reviewed, evaluated, and field-tested in classrooms by workshop participants.
