This webinar is part of a series supporting teaching with InTeGrate principles, using InTeGrate-developed and curated materials as tools.
Registration is now closed.
In order for geology to appeal to a more diverse group of students we need to build programs that understand our current students and their communities, encourage development of the whole student, support students from all contexts and cultures, and provide continuity from a point before students enter our programs to a point beyond successfully leaving our programs. We will explore examples of activities that support our "multicontextual" student populations (Ibarra, 2001) and highlight the "capacity-engagement-continuity" model of Jolly et al. (2004).
At the end of this webinar, participants will have:
- the ability to evaluate the appeal of your program to multicontextual learners and make modifications to enhance its appeal
- tools to build a program that supports all students through strategies that build engagement, capacity and continuity through curricular and extra-curricular activities
