The Spatial Thinking Journal Club had monthly virtual meetings from January to May, 2012, to discuss readings from the geoscience and cognitive science literature, with an emphasis on exploring the cognitive aspects of spatial thinking and their implications for geoscience education. To facilitate a deep exploration of this topic, we ran the meetings as a series, with participants committing to all five meetings. See the overview page for more information, including journal club goals, readings and discussion topics.
