Teaching Volcanology

Friday 1:30pm-2:45pm TSU - Lawson: 107 B
Round Table Discussion


Paul Ashwell, University of Toronto
Volcanology is an exciting and engaging topic within Earth Sciences. It is rich with opportunities for students to learn about volcanoes and their processes through visual and interactive means. This discussion will focus on innovative methods of teaching volcanology; in lectures, laboratory or field settings; for use in Undergraduate and Graduate teaching, Secondary (K-12) education and outreach; and as a means of engaging students in Earth Sciences. We encourage discussions on successful methods, on problems met, or from questions arising about the teaching of volcanology. Whether you teach volcanology at beginner, intermediate or advanced levels, or are interested in incorporating volcanology content for the first time, we welcome you to this roundtable discussion.
