NAGT sponsors a number of professional development workshops for geoscience educators through collaborations with its sponsored projects. These workshops provide opportunities for faculty to learn more about pedagogy, to share their classroom experiences and materials, to explore new ways of engaging students, and to discuss what works in geoscience education broadly.
The Traveling Workshops Program brings national leaders in geoscience education to your campus or regional event to help faculty improve courses or help strengthen entire departments.
The NAGT sponsors a number of sessions and events at GSA, AGU, and other professional meetings across the country. Several of these have produced collections of valuable educational resources. Request to have NAGT sponsor your session or event.

The Geoscience Teachers-in-the-Parks program is an offshoot of the National Park Services Geoscientists-in-the-Parks program which places geoscientists in parks on a short-term basis to help park-specific research, education, and interpretative projects. The program will run for the final time in the summer of 2015.
These faculty have given talks on various topics over the years. If you are looking for a geoscience speaker for your event, start here.
