GET Spatial Learning Network


Through the collaboration of cognitive psychologists, education researchers, and geoscience educators, the Geoscience Education Transdisciplinary Spatial Learning Network aims to develop educational tools that can help students, across classroom and field settings, to better understand and build upon historically difficult geoscience concepts.

GSA Workshop 2018

We will be leading a half-day workshop on Strengthening Students' Spatial Thinking Skills at the 2018 annual meeting of the Geological Society of America. This short course will focus on developing geoscience students' spatial thinking skills through research-based curricular materials. We will emphasize strategies and tools that support students with a range of spatial skills without imposing additional burdens on the instructor.
