The deadline for submitting abstracts and teaching demo proposals has now passed, however the deadline for posters and share-a-thon proposals has been extended to June 3. Remember to register before May 1 to receive the early bird rate!]]> Tue, 15 May 2018 00:00:00 -0500 https://serc.carleton.edu/serc/news/2018_earth.html New Articles Available on the SAGE Musings Blog https://serc.carleton.edu/serc/news/new_articles.html The SAGE 2YC project is building a national network of two-year college geoscience faculty who implement evidence-based practices that will lead to improved STEM learning, broadened participation, and a more robust STEM workforce. Four new articles related to these project goals are now available on the SAGE Musings blog, focusing on using guided pathways to increase degree completion rates, how lessons from biology education—including strategies to incorporate inclusivity and diversity in the classroom— are relevant to teaching geoscience, the impact of social-psychological interventions on academic trajectories, and strategies for facilitating students' professional development in the geosciences.
