Improving Instruction, Broadening Participation and Supporting Transfer Opportunities in the Earth Sciences within the San Francisco Bay Area

This workshop has already occurred.

Saturday April 27th, 2019

Introductory Earth Sciences classes are both our opportunity to share our understanding of the Earth with college students and act as "gateways" for many of our students into STEM related fields of study. This workshop will bring us together to share ideas on effective teaching practices and on ways to better support transfer majors and diversity in our transfer population. Methods of promoting diversity in the major and tools for prospective students considering majoring in the Earth Sciences will be explored. Time will be given for networking with our colleagues and sharing our best practices in teaching and learning. Joining us in our discussions will be representatives from local transfer institutions offering tips, information, and an opportunity to discuss creating smooth pathways for transfer students into their departments.
