Re-imagining geoscience education in Wisconsin

Registration Deadline: October 15, 2018

This event has already occurred.

EVENT DATE: October 26, 2018
LOCATION: University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Fox Valley Campus

With the reorganization of the UW colleges and UW comprehensives, many aspects of our teaching will be changing to accommodate these new situations. At this workshop we will be outlining the colleges outcomes assessment data for geography, geology, and meteorology courses in the former UW Colleges. In addition we will address the demographic characteristics of the student population and the success of those students in the courses identified. Following lunch we will introduce both InTeGrate and GETSI resources and how they may be utilized in the courses which we offer. One of the goals will also be to organize a network of geography, geology, geoscience, and meteorology instructors to help us keep in touch with each other.
