Teaching with Online Field Experiences
Work in Progress
This set of pages is being developed by a diverse group of geoscience field camp directors and faculty to provide the community with advice and resources on how to implement effective and rigorous online field experiences. The resource will include help for designing individual activities, capstone experiences, and extended field courses. Faculty are also contributing teaching materials and course descriptions that they have developed to meet their particular needs and these collections will be available in the near future. Faculty are encouraged to get involved by joining in the discussions, webinars, and other events as well as contributing their teaching materials to the effort.
This website provides an overview of the work of more than 300 geoscience educators in response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic to share expertise and existing resources and to develop new resources to support remote or virtual capstone summer field experiences for undergraduate geoscience majors. This NSF-sponsored project is a collaborative effort of NAGT and the IAGD, and involves over 300 field camp directors, instructors, and resources developers around the world.
