UNAVCO Community, please note the workshop listed below.


>
> Workshop on Teaching with New Geoscience Tools: Visualizations, Models, 
> and
> Online Data
> Application Deadline: December 29, 2007
>
> This is an exciting time for the geosciences, which has become a space-age
> science that uses remotely collected data, high performance computing, and
> state of the art models and visualizations. These new tools can be
> rewarding to share with our students, who may already be well-versed in
> today's digital culture.
>
> To foster this type of innovation in undergraduate education, a workshop
> titled Teaching with New Geoscience Tools: Visualizations, Models, and
> Online Data will be held February 10-12, 2008, at Arizona State 
> University,
> Tempe, AZ  as part of the On the Cutting Edge series of faculty 
> development
> workshops.
>
> This workshop will bring together 70 geoscientists and educators to
> showcase the variety of ways in which we currently teach with modern
> geoscience data, models and visualizations and to learn about the ways in
> which new innovations in these areas can be incorporated in undergraduate
> teaching.  Underpinning these activities will be sessions identifying the
> major lessons from educational research that can guide inquiry-based,
> data-rich teaching.
>
> Applications are invited from geoscience faculty currently teaching with
> on-line data, visualizations, and models; geoscience researchers whose
> data, visualizations, or models are suitable for use in undergraduate
> teaching; and learning scientists and educational researchers whose work
> sheds light on effective teaching with on-line data, visualizations, and
> models.
>
> For more information and to access the online application form, please go
