Place-Based Geoscience Teaching
Place-based geoscience teaching leverages our students' intellectual and emotional connections to the places we use in teaching, to foster more relevant and inclusive learning. If you are interested in place-based geoscience education but have little or no prior experience with it, please join this roundtable for a brief introduction to, and a few illustrative examples of, place-based curriculum and instruction; followed by informal conversation and sharing of ideas to help participants teach in more place-based ways.
All roundtable discussions will take place online, via Zoom (see below).
