Search for In The Trenches Editor
April 11, 2019 – The National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) is seeking a new Editor for our In The Trenches (ITT) quarterly publication. After 3 years of exemplary service, ITT Editor Margaret Crowder announced this spring that she would step down as editor. The transition to the new editor is expected to occur during the editing of the January 2020 issue.
In the Trenches is a quarterly print and digital publication for NAGT members designed to provide a forum for geosciences education dialog targeting educators in the classroom. It provides a venue for contributors to inform members about their best teaching ideas, resources or other special topics relevant to our profession that do not lend themselves to more research-focused journals. The idea is to provide a more informal outlet for ideas and experiences that can inform the larger community.
The ITT Editor is primarily responsible for the accuracy and the integrity of the ITT articles. As head of this publication, the editor is positioned to help authors publish informative, accessible and entertaining articles. The ITT Editor should have broad interests, good communication skills and wide contacts in the field, in addition to enthusiasm for ITT, the ability to persuade people to contribute, organizational skills and a commitment to devote the necessary time to the effort. Except for travel support to the NAGT Executive Committee spring meeting, the position is unpaid.
For a complete description of ITT, see the ITT home page. For additional information about the position, contact email@example.com. Applications will be due this summer, with interviews by the Fall, and more details about the process will be posted here in late April.
