Starting in Fall 2017, NAGT's GER division is proud to host a series of webinars that address different topics and methods in geoscience education research. We plan to host 1-2 of these each semester. An archive of webinars will be hosted here.
"Navigating life as a GER Student (or interested in becoming one): Getting involved and networking in the community" (October 7th, 2020)
Presenters: Bailey Zo Kreager, Northern Illinois University; Larry Collings, Washington State University
An essential component of graduate school is networking. Networking opportunities can include finding colleagues outside of your institution and through professional organizations. A great way to do this is by getting involved in NAGT and GSA. As more in-person networking events are canceled or moved online, it is important to create new opportunities for graduate students to interact. This webinar will provide one of these opportunities. During this hour, we will discuss opportunities for students to become involved in both GSA and NAGT, including the path that we took to our current leadership positions. Attendees will also have time to participate in small groups to meet each other and learn about each other's interests/research. This webinar is for students who are conducting geoscience education research and those who are interested in this discipline. You do not have to be an NAGT-GER Division member to attend.

"Funding opportunities for Geoscience Education Related Initiatives and Research" (May 6th, 2020)
Presenter: Dr. Brandon Jones, National Science Foundation
This webinar will provide an overview of funding opportunities from the National Science Foundation available for work related to Geoscience Education. The speaker, Dr. Brandon Jones, is an NSF Program Officer who oversees programs related to introducing students to geoscience disciplines, workforce development and development of learning ecosystems (collaborations, partnerships, etc.) to support students, and in some cases educators, in the geosciences. We will discuss underutilized opportunities and also provide general tips for successful Geoscience Education proposals.
