Incorporating Professional Skills in Geoscience Courses

Workshop Goals

During this workshop, we will:

  • learn from geoscience professionals about the skills and attitudes they seek in new employees, and
  • explore avenues to incorporate these skills and attitudes into our geoscience classes

Date and times

Friday, October 26

2:30pm - 3:20pm


Participants are encouraged to come ready to interact with each other and reflect on their current courses and how they may modify their assignments to match with feedback from the professional geoscience community.
