Virtual Marine Sediment Core Collection part of GEODE:GEODE Teaching Resources
A primary objective of marine science classes is to learn the location and formation of ocean sediment types. Nearly 50 years of scientific ocean drilling has produced a tremendous scientific collection of cores ...
Exploring Marine Sediments Using Google Earth part of GEODE:GEODE Teaching Resources
This exercise uses empirical data and Google Earth to explore the surficial distribution of marine sediments in the modern ocean. Over 2500 sites are plotted with access to original data. We recommend first ...
Marine Microfossils and Biostratigraphy part of Paleontology:Activities
This exercise set explores marine microfossil distributions in deep-sea cores. Students are guided to apply a biostratigraphic zonation and interpret relative age, correlate from one region of the world ocean to ...
Antarctica and Neogene Global Climate Change part of Climate Change:Activities
This exercise set introduces students to Antarctica paleoclimatology in the Neogene. Students investigate geographic, glacial, and geologic data from Antarctica and apply geologic reasoning to propose the best ...
Interpreting Antarctic Sediment Cores: A Record of Dynamic Neogene Climate part of Climate Change:Activities
This exercise set focuses on the use of sedimentary facies (lithologies interpreted to record particular depositional environments) to interpret paleoenvironmental and paleoclimatic changes in Neogene sediment ...
Oceanography for Pre-Service Teachers part of Oceanography:Courses
The syllabus describes the goals, objectives, assignments, and schedule used in the James Madison University undergraduate oceanography course for pre-service teachers.

Marine Geology Using GEODE part of Earth Educators Rendezvous:Rendezvous 2019:Program:Morning Workshops:Marine Geology Using GEODE
Marine sediments and the geology of the ocean basins are important content topics in all oceanography courses. However these can be "dry" topics to teach, and may be difficult for students to appreciate. ...
GER Forum part of Earth Educators Rendezvous:Previous Rendezvous:Rendezvous 2017:Program:GER Forum
Help to shape the emerging field of Geoscience Education Research! Geoscience educators, bring your classroom, lab and field teaching experiences to the table for an informal discussion of: Has there been a ...
Geoscience Education Research Grand Challenges and Strategies Workshop part of Earth Educators Rendezvous:Previous Rendezvous:Rendezvous 2017:Program:Morning Workshops:Geoscience Education Research
The workshop aims to bring together ~40 education researchers from all sub-disciplines in the geosciences (e.g., Earth, Atmospheric, Ocean, Environmental Sciences) and strongly encourages applications from faculty ...
Integration and Collaboration are Keys to a Productive and Joyful GER Career part of Earth Educators Rendezvous:Previous Rendezvous:Rendezvous 2016:Program:Morning Workshops:GER:Idea Papers
Kristen Ellen Kudless St. John, James Madison University I was not formally trained in GER. I broadened my geoscience research to include GER while I was early tenure track and was tasked with being the liaison ...
Geoscience Education Research Community Planning Workshop part of Earth Educators Rendezvous:Previous Rendezvous:Rendezvous 2016:Program:Morning Workshops:GER
The Geoscience Education Research (GER) Community Planning workshop will serve as a forum for discussion by the GER community on what is most needed to support current and future geoscience education researchers. ...
Getting Your Education Work Published part of Rendezvous 2015:Program:Mini Workshops:Ed Publishing
Success with peer-reviewed journal publications are at the heart of tenure and promotion, as well as a critically important way to share your work with others. At this workshop, we will explore differences between ...
Synthesizing Geoscience Education Research: Where are we? What is the path forward? part of Rendezvous 2015:Program:Workshops:Geo Ed Research
This workshop will explore and evaluate the current status of Geoscience Education Research within the greater geoscience community. Participants will prioritize needs and directions for future Geoscience Education ...
Shaping the Future of Geoscience Education part of Rendezvous 2015:Program:Plenary Sessions
We welcome all Rendezvous participants to this Town Hall. We'll start with an overview of just-in-time highlights from our workshop on Synthesizing Geoscience Education Research (GER), and then pose questions ...
