Daniel Laó Dávila: Using Volcanic Hazards in Exploring Earth: Introduction To Geology at Oklahoma State University-Main Campus part of Monitoring Volcanoes and Communicating Risks
This module was used in an introductory geology course for non-majors that used a combination of Integrate and GETSI modules and lecture-based classes. This was the first time that the class was taught with so many interactive activities, as the course was taught with a traditional lecture style on previous years. The Monitoring Volcanic Hazards module was interesting because it offered real monitoring data presented in a basic way so that students could easily see the signals of volcanic activity in different scenarios. The implementation in my course was interesting because of the large class (116 students) and the types of students (non-science). The students were able to read the introductory text, work in groups, analyze the data, and arrive to an interpretation about the volcanic activities.
