Webinar Description

The webinar will focus on two major themes: developing effective classroom activities that challenge and excite your students and optimizing those activities for the review process for contributed activities to Teach the Earth. Participants will use the review rubric and best practices established from thousands of previous activities to create their best, most transferrable teaching activities. You will gain insights into what other teachers value in content and pedagogy, as well as learn about the review process and how to get more involved in the community of geoscience educators.

Webinar Goals

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Navigate the Teach the Earth activity submission tool;
  • Create effective, adaptable activities "beginning with the end in mind;"
  • Include accessibility and inclusion principles in their course and activity development;
  • Articulate the priorities of reviewers to produce teaching activities that achieve Exemplary status.
