We would like to draw your attention to the following session, taking place at the 2018 Northeastern Section Meeting of the Geological Society of America.

 

T17. The Class that Time Forgot: Best Practices in Teaching Earth History

 

Joseph Reese jreese@edinboro.edu and Eric Straffin estraffin@edinboro.edu , Edinboro University of Pennsylvania.

 

We seek to explore and share experiences related to best practices in the teaching of Earth History. While taught in most undergraduate geology programs, this scantly-mentioned course offers great potential for developing skills in observation, analysis, interpretation, and for inspiring interest in our science and laying the foundation for later study in geology. In addition, rapid advances in accessibility to new technology and data open new possibilities for the practice of teaching of Earth History, that we would like to explore in this session. We seek contributions that highlight these and other advancements in the teaching of this class that time forgot. 

The deadline for abstract submissions is Tuesday, December 12, 2017, 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Time).

The 2018 GSA Northeastern Section Meeting occurs March 1820, 2018, in Burlington, Vermont.
