Teaching Structural Geology, Geophysics, and Tectonics Workshop

published Jan 9, 2012 9:41am
This summer, On the Cutting Edge will offer a workshop from July 15-19 at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville on Teaching Structural Geology, Geophysics, and Tectonics in the 21st Century.

As with all Cutting Edge workshops, this workshop will bring together faculty who teach undergraduate courses in structural geology, geophysics, and/or tectonics in a collaborative effort to showcase and share effective strategies and to consider how to teach these disciplines more effectively. The focus of the workshop will be on teaching the grand challenges/leading edge ideas/frontiers in these three disciplines and on integration across these disciplines in undergraduate courses for majors. You can find the full workshop description and online application at


We hope that you will pass this announcement on to interested colleagues. And, if you teach these courses, we hope you will apply to the workshop.

The application deadline is February 15, 2012.
