Resources for Faculty Teaching Undergraduate Geoscience

Portals and Thematic Collections Designed for Faculty Teaching Undergraduate Geoscience

These sites bring together resources that address broad issues in geoscience education.

Using On-line Resources in the Classroom and Beyond

These examples demonstrate ways in which individual or groups in the geosciences can develop portals and thematic collections to address challenges facing undergraduate geoscience education.

Developing New Data Rich Teaching Materials

Numerous community discussions have indicated that the key to developing on-line data resources that maximize their potential to enhance geoscience education is the co-development of these resources by teams that include geoscientists, educators, and data providers. To facilitate this development, AccessData hosts workshops to create modules using available Earth science datasets and data access and analysis tools.

A Place for Discussion

The Geo-ed list-server provides an on-line forum for announcements and discussions of issues in undergraduate educators. The list grew out of an AGU Chapman conference "Scrutiny of Undergraduate Geoscience Education". The list is not moderated, but is a closed list- any subscriptions to the list go through approval by the list administrator (Bryan Tapp, University of Tulsa, To subscribe, send the message subscribe geo-ed [your e-mail address] to
