Integrating field work, field trips and long-term projects into classroom/lab activities

What do we want to accomplish?

This working group will focus on two topics:1) ways of going beyond simply having a field trip in a structural geology course to more effectively integrate field work and field trips into classroom and lab activities, and 2) activities and resources to support long-term investigative projects in a structural geology course that do not involve either field trips of independent field work. As can be seen in the workshop program, we'll add some text here after we have worked out what we want to say!
