The Role of Metacognition in Learning
An awareness of the learning process improves learning, yet students are rarely taught how to develop this awareness. These webpages explore ways to help our students to improve their learning by incorporating metacognition into our geoscience courses: by having them think about their thinking and by helping them to become aware of and monitor their learning strategies.

Teaching GeoEthics Across the Geoscience Curriculum
Ethics Education is an increasingly important component of the pre-professional training of (geo)scientists. Funding agencies (NSF, NIH) require training of graduate students in the responsible conduct of research, employers are increasingly expecting their workers to have basic training in ethics, and the public demands the highest standards of ethical conduct by scientists. Yet, few faculty have the requisite training to effectively teach about ethics in their classes, or even informally in mentoring students working in their labs.

DIG Texas Instructional Blueprints for Teaching Earth and Space Science
DIG Texas is creating five online course road maps, or blueprints, for use in high school Earth and Space Science classes. A blueprint documents what to teach, in what order, for how long, and identifies which online resources to use of the thousands available.
