Friday 1:30pm-2:45pm
Round Table Discussion

More introductory undergraduate online lab courses in the geosciences are being offered now than ever before. Fully online lab courses can allow more students, and students who are not able to complete face-to-face courses, to participate. How does student engagement and learning compare in online vs. face to face (or other modalities)? Join us to learn how we have approached designing and teaching asynchronous online geoscience labs, share your experiences and ideas, and contribute to community documentation of challenges and strategies for success.
