Workshop Description:

This workshop is designed for 2-year college instructors teaching in the earth sciences, including geology, oceanography, and environmental science. You will leave with take-away activities and tools you can use in your classrooms. We will explore research-based strategies that increase student engagement and success through active learning. Geoscience has a diversity problem; we'll explore activities that build community and promote inclusive education. You will connect with other educators in the region to help support your efforts.
