It's not too late to submit an abstract to share your scalable teaching strategies. 
In addition to scientific papers, First authors can submit an additional contributed abstract to an Education (ED) or Public Affairs (PA) session. 
First Authors can have a maximum of one (1) contributed and one (1) invited abstract, or two (2) invited abstracts. The only exemption to this policy is the submission of (1) additional contributed abstract to an Education (ED) or Public Affairs (PA) session.

We invite you to submit to AGU session ED035: Scalable Instruction in Earth Science: From MOOCs to Adaptive Learning 

New approaches and instructional technologies are changing the landscape of education. A key feature is scalability: the ability to handle increasing numbers of individuals on a single platform. Online learning, blended instruction, adaptive learning and MOOCs allow scaling of earth science classes. Understanding and incorporating these techniques is critical in meeting state and community expectations for education. Benefits include increased accessibility, lower costs, increased instructor feedback, and higher levels of personalization. We welcome papers on all aspects of scalable instructional strategies, especially those on implementation and assessment.

Invited abstracts from: 
Michael Wysession, Washington University
Declan de Paor, Old Dominion University
Timothy Bralower, Pennsylvania State University
Stephen Marshak, University of Illinois
