Active Learning: Hood to Coast

November 5, 2016
Mount Hood Community College

This workshop has already occurred.

This free one-day workshop will explore active learning from "Hood to Coast" while focusing on stormwater. You will learn about stormwater management from a City of Gresham engineer, visit the site of a recent (November 2015) culvert blow out and will develop a regional based case study related to the hydrological cycle which incorporates active learning. You will also network and become part of a regional geoscience education community which will continue to collaborate at three future regional workshops.
