InTeGrate 2018 Spring Webinar Series Continues

published Feb 12, 2018 12:00am

Free and open to the public, the InTeGrate 2018 Spring Webinar Series will incorporate InTeGrate pedagogies into teaching practices, provide resources available for adoption, and create a forum for participants to learn and share teaching strategies. The series continues Wednesday, February 28 with the webinar Addressing Critical Issues in Your Community: Examples for Introductory Courses. The registration deadline for this webinar is Monday, February 26, 2018.

Earth scientists serve inherently civic roles addressing critical issues of water quality and quantity, soil health, mineral and energy resource extraction, climate change, and natural hazards. This GSA & AGI co-sponsored webinar will showcase easy-entry community engagement activities that help build capacity for our community to address critical issues. Strategies include outreach, advocacy, research in-service to partners, and knowledge co-development. We will highlight examples that are most accessible (i.e. introductory classes). We also seek your examples of critical issues your students explore locally through data analyses.


At the end of this webinar, participants will have:

  • An understanding of major strategies for engaging students in their communities and primary learning outcomes
  • Ideas for introductory courses where information literacy is critical
  • Ideas for introductory courses that are low cost and tied to critical issues
  • A cohort of attendees interested in critical issues and community engagement
