Dear UNAVCO Community,

please, consider applying for this year's Faculty-in-Residence Program. 
It is a great opportunity to  create new educational materials related 
to our science.

The UNAVCO Faculty-in-Residence summer program is an initiative designed 
to involve college/university faculty members in UNAVCO education and 
outreach endeavors. The successful candidates will be energetic, active 
members of the UNAVCO community who teach introductory/general education 
college geoscience courses. The Faculty-in-Residence will work at UNAVCO 
headquarters in Boulder, CO for one week in June/July/ August each year.

*Housing, transportation, and a salary are available.*

The faculty-in-residence will have the following roles:

- Work independently and with UNAVCO education and outreach staff to 
develop classroom materials for introductory/general education 
geoscience courses and/or upper level geophysics courses.

 - Pilot-test project materials in his/her classroom during the 
following academic year and work with UNAVCO to assess students' learning.

 - Share GPS and plate tectonics content knowledge with the UNAVCO 
Master Teacher(s)-in-Residence.

 - Interact with UNAVCO in the future in the context of professional 
development activities, dissemination of classroom materials, and more.

 
Application materials must be received by _May 30, 2008_. For inquiries
