Designed for faculty interested in improving their use of visualizations in teaching, this all day workshop included research from cognitive science addressing how students learn from visualizations and examples of teaching with visualizations from leading geoscience faculty. The workshop featured highlights from the February 2004 Workshop on Teaching Geoscience with Visualizations.

The goals of the workshop were to:

  • Highlight relevant research from cognitive science
  • Share ideas for effective classroom practice
  • Discuss principles for designing and evaluating visualizations for use with students

A registration fee of $30 is required. Registration is on a first come first served basis. There is a 30 person limit.
