Tuesday 2:45pm-4:00pm Gordon: Concerto Meeting Room
Panel Discussion

Paul Kelso, Lake Superior State University
Cathy Manduca, Carleton College (Moderator)

Prior to redesigning the entire undergraduate geology curriculum at Lake Superior State University we conducted a national survey of all undergraduate geoscience programs through the American Geosciences Institute. Our goal was to determine the core geoscience competencies as perceived by faculty and to ascertain perceptions as to the best ways to teach these concepts. Continued discussion and evaluation by the geoscience community of the Core Earth Science Competencies and Skills, such as through your participation in this forum, are necessary if we are to prepare students for 21st century geoscience jobs.
