Impacts Workshop

Colorado College
14 East Cache La Poudre
Colorado Springs, CO 80903

February 11-12, 2010


The AccessData Impacts workshop has two goals:

  • Get a better sense of the impact of the DLESE Data Services (DDS)/AccessData workshops on moving the use of geoscience data in education forward – both short term with respect to the structure/facilitation of the workshops, and long term – in terms of impact on practice in the participants profession
  • Get suggestions from participants to evolve the workshop to a sustainable model


The AccessData Impacts Workshop involves invited data representatives, tool specialists, scientists, educational materials developers, and college- and high school-level educators who have attended previous AccessData workshops.

What will happen during the workshop?

The focus of the workshop will be three breakout sessions (see agenda for details). Participants bring their professional expertise to the discussion, facilitated by a peer and captured by a workshop staff member.

Who will pay?

Lodging, breakfast, lunch, and snacks at Colorado College will be provided for all accepted participants. Funding is also available for travel stipends; this will be awarded as necessary to ensure that all professional roles will be represented at the meeting. To minimize paperwork, all participants will be asked to pay for their own travel up front. At the workshop, participants will sign the appropriate form to request their travel stipend, and checks will be mailed to them within 30 days.

Lodging will be at the Antlers Hilton in Downtown Colorado Springs. If you do not wish to stay at the Antler's Hilton, you will be responsible for finding your own lodging. The Antler's Hilton is approximately 1 mile away from Colorado College.
