  • Enhanced Seismology Education for Undergraduates [504]
    Sat., 21 Oct., 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Cosponsored by GSA Geoscience Education Division This workshop is intended for faculty at 2- and 4-year colleges and universities who wish to learn both new seismology content and instructional strategies to effectively convey content to students. Seismology topics will include "hot topics," causes of earthquakes, propagation of seismic waves, statistics and data, Earth's structure, and hazards. Educational topics will feature instructional sequences, student conceptions in geoscience, and constructivist learning theory. Effective science instruction will be modeled by emphasizing hands-on and inquiry-based activities to deliver content to learners.
    Faculty: Jeff Barker, Ph.D., Binghamton University; Michael Hubenthal, IRIS Consortium; Tom Owens, Ph.D., University of South Carolina; John Taber, Ph.D., IRIS Consortium.
    Limit: 25. Fee: US$15; includes course materials and lunch. CEU: 0.8.
