Participant Checklist

By Friday, April 27:

By Monday, May 7:

  • Submit a 1-3 page essay for publication on the website. We ask that each participant write a short essay providing an overview of your approach to or your insights into teaching the methods of geoscience. It could be based on your experience teaching the methods, your research about the methods or teaching the methods of geoscience, or your experience using the methods in your geoscience research. The essays will be posted on the workshop website and become part of the InTeGrate resource collections. We will use these essays to prepare for discussions at the workshop.
  • Submit a teaching activity and a course description that showcase the ways in which you teach about the methods of geoscience. If you have already submitted courses and/or activities to the SERC collection that would be appropriate here, you may submit an activity supplement or a course supplement to highlight how the activity and/or course addresses the methods of geoscience
  • Optional: Contribute any other resource (reference, visualization, etc.)

  • Submit your travel plans. For more information on travel, lodging, ground transportation and meals see the logistics page. Make your plans so that you can attend the entire workshop. Please note that traveling to and from Bozeman in the summertime can be difficult due to the high tourist volume so it is wise to make your arrangements early.
