A Community Framework for Geoscience Education Research

Community Framework for GER Cover
The Geoscience Education Research (GER) community is growing. In the interest of making research efforts and resources go as far as possible, the community has come together to layout a framework of Grand Challenges facing GER that will take sustained effort over many years. The framework points to areas where individual researchers can make large contributions without prescribing particular projects that should be pursued.
