Geology programs across the country use field camps as capstone experiences in which majors apply what they have learned throughout their degree in a field setting, often for 5-6 weeks at a time. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced educators everywhere to innovate for 2020 and now 2021. Join this roundtable discussion to discuss ideas and resources for teaching field geology online. Leaders will showcase work done in 2020 by more than 350 geoscience educators, and share how students assessed their own learning in these virtual camps.
