Professional Development

NAGT conducts a number of programs through its officers, sections, and volunteers ranging from awards and scholarships to internships and guest speakers. NAGT is also a sponsor of work by other groups of researchers and educators who are working on similar issue. See the Sponsored Programs page for more information about these outside groups and to request NAGT sponsorship of your efforts.


NAGT has entered into collaboration with the On the Cutting Edge program to expand and promote membership in our organization, increase participation in our workshop programs and publication submissions. On the Cutting Edge, an NSF funded program, has developed a culture of sharing and ongoing professional development surrounding undergraduate teaching within the geoscience community. This program adds to the foundation of professionalism in geoscience education created and supported by NAGT through its programs, publications, and awards.
