The GETSI project will be offering a free webinar on January 10, 2014 on the topic of incorporating geodesy data into undergraduate courses. This webinar will provide an overview of geodetic methods and existing teaching resources that can be used to address critical societal geoscience questions.
- NAGT @ AGU
NAGT will have a presence at the 2013 AGU Fall Meeting and there are all sorts of things going on around geoscience education. Come by the booth, even if you can't volunteer, because that's going to be the place to meet other members and learn about things going on in the organization and at the meeting.
The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) was established in 1938 to foster improvement in the teaching of earth sciences at all levels of formal and informal instruction, to emphasize the cultural significance of the earth sciences, and to disseminate knowledge in this field to the general public.
NAGT organizes the technical program in geoscience education at every GSA Annual Meeting, and in this context also sponsors numerous technical sessions, workshops, and field trips. The organization also fosters advances in the teaching and learning of geoscience by means of scholarship aid to summer field-camp students, professional workshops for geoscience faculty, its Distinguished Speaker Series, and the Journal of Geoscience Education and through its partnership with the National Association for Black Geologists and Geophysicists.
In 2003 the Central Section of the NAGT was reorganized to include the former Central and East-Central Sections.
