Distinguished Speakers Series

The NAGT Distinguished Speaker Series is one of the most visible and direct services of the Association. Members at colleges, universities and other academic institutions can apply to have one of our featured researchers on the cutting edge of geoscience education research and teaching visit their institution to deliver seminars, workshops, and in-person consultation with researchers and geoscience departments. Speakers and their topics are as diverse as our membership, and we update offerings every year to reflect the latest developments in the field and the concerns of our membership. For current Speakers and application instructions, follow the links below.

The Distinguished Speaker Program will be suspended for the 2011-2012 Academic year. NAGT will be redesigning this vital program to better serve the needs of faculty and their institutions.

In the mean time, consider a Building Stronger Geoscience Courses Traveling Workshop or utilizing speakers from other organizations such GeoPRISMS, COMPRES, and EarthScope.
