- Interested in learning more about how to incorporate sustainability into your curriculum?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
With eight billion people inhabiting a finite planet, living sustainability is a human imperative in the 21st century. Students understand this, and many come to their study of the Earth seeking authentic engagement with sustainability while also increasing the connection of their knowledge to societal needs.
- Interested in learning more about how to incorporate InTeGrate materials into your curriculum?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
Two-year college faculty and instructors who want to adopt new materials into their courses are often concerned about the lack of sufficient time. This includes time for them to learn the new materials and class time where they will "fit" new activities into their current course syllabi. InTeGrate (Interdisciplinary Teaching about the Earth for a Sustainable Future) supports the teaching of geoscience in the context of societal issues both within geoscience courses and across the undergraduate curriculum. To this end, InTeGrate classroom modules align with high-impact practices that enhance Earth literacy among college students.
- Interested in learning more about how to increase diversity in the sciences?-- Join the Earth Educators' Rendezvous this summer!
Successfully meeting global environmental and resource challenges requires science students from diverse backgrounds who are prepared for jobs ranging from petroleum geologist to sustainability business consultant. To educate this workforce requires that we attract diverse students into the STEM sciences, support them fully in our programs, and assist them as they transition into the workforce.
