Subject: {The IAGD} Webinar: Designing Remote Geology Field Courses, March 23, 1:30pm ET, 12:30pm CT, 11:30 MT


Dear Geoscience Field Course Instructors,


Due to the potential cancellation of many summer field courses and camps, we are holding a webinar on Monday, March 23, at 1:30pm Eastern, to discuss other options.  We are thinking about creating some alternatives to a traditional field camp for this year.  As such, we would like to brainstorm the best ways of creating accessible and inclusive field experiences through remote synchronous and asynchronous instructional strategies. If you have an idea to share, submit your idea to the following form so we can schedule time for you to share during the webinar: .  The amount of time provided will be dependent on the number of ideas received.  Please plan for 3-5 minutes.


Keep in mind that there are many different types of field courses.  While many of the ideas shared will be useful across all field experiences, we will need to consider breaking down into discipline-specific working groups to address specific needs for specific field course types.  So, join us, come with ideas to share, and bring an open mind.  This webinar will be recorded for those of you unable to attend.  Follow-up emails with ideas and any additional questions to consider will be shared broadly. 


Information to connect to the webinar is provided below.


Thank you,


Chris Atchison, University of Cincinnati
