Getting the Most Out of Your Intro Courses
December 16, 2014, 1:00-5:00 pm
At the American Geophysical Union Meeting, San Francisco, CA
Introductory courses in the geosciences (geology, oceanography, atmospheric science, Earth system science) play a pivotal role in undergraduate education. They serve as recruiting grounds for majors and future professionals, provide critical experiences in geoscience for pre-service teachers, and may be the only course in geoscience that future policy makers, business people, professionals, and citizens ever take. We need to make the most of these courses, but how?
This workshop will provide the opportunity for participants to analyze their introductory courses and explore the ways that they can be designed to best serve their needs in their context.
