Welcome to the latest collaboration of the geoscience education  
research and geocognition research community Ė the Geoscience  
Education Research Listserv (GEOED-RESEARCH)! This list is exactly  
the outcome we hoped would come out of the interest group meeting  
held at GSA in Oct. 2007. Several organizations and universities  
offered to host this list, a great illustration of the significant  
interest the community has in moving our common research interests  
forward! We didnít want to choose among all of these options, so we  
went with the simplest route. The list is running off of a mailing- 
list management product called LISTSERV, licensed through Michigan  
State University. We are co-hosting the list, so it is truly multi- 
institutional, and the list is designed so that anyone can join and  
post. Instructions for easy subscribing and emailing to the list are  
appended below. We have also added a few guidelines for list-serve  
etiquette!

We hope this listserv allows for open dialogue and new  
collaborations. Please encourage those of your colleagues interested  
in geoscience education research to join, whether they are active  
researchers, avid readers, or interested collaborators. We are  
looking forward to the opportunity to share ideas, and learn from  
each other.

Let the conversations begin!
