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.

Webinar Goals

In this webinar, presenters and participants will:

  • be introduced to the graduate leadership for NAGT and GSA,
  • discuss our positions and how people can get involved in the future, and
  • provide some breakout time for students to network.
