EarthCube Education End-User Workshop
March 4-5, 2013
This NAGT-sponsored workshop brought together an interesting mix of innovative scientist-educators, employers who wish to hire data-savvy graduates, data-providers who wish to have students and teachers among their user-communities, and technologists to help envision the tools and capabilities that may be available for undergraduate teaching in the near future.
