Workshop: Teaching About Earth Online

May 30 - June 1, 2017 
Penn State University, State College, PA

Teaching online is growing in acceptance and its accessibility creates an opportunity to reach students from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. There is a need to develop best practices for teaching about Earth online, as new technological topics, pedagogical approaches, and teaching materials that incorporate active learning and data emerge. This workshop will focus on best practices, collecting resources, and developing materials that can be widely disseminated. It is open to all faculty who have the opportunity to teach Earth Sciences using online education.  Travel stipends are available by application to help offset the cost of traveling to the workshop if you are accepted. Application Deadline: April 2, 2017
