Registration is now open for the inaugural Earth Educators’ Rendezvous this summer at the University of Colorado, Boulder.
The 2015 first annual Earth Educators' Rendezvous will bring together researchers and practitioners working in all aspects of undergraduate Earth education. We welcome faculty from all disciplines who are interested in improving their teaching about the Earth, administrators from geoscience departments and interdisciplinary programs that want to become stronger, and education researchers of all types. Join the Rendezvous for 2 or 3 days or stay the whole week.  The morning workshop program has been finalized and is open for registration on a first-come, first-serve basis (workshop size is limited based on room capacity). The first draft of the afternoon mini-workshops is available, and we welcome your feedback.
The Rendezvous will help us individually and collectively address the suite of interrelated challenges faced by undergraduate Earth Education faculty today:
developing students' higher order geoscientific skills, from data analysis to critical thinking to effective communication
increasing the number and diversity of students who learn about Earth
collaborating with colleagues across the disciplines to situate learning about Earth in a societal context
supporting current and future teachers in successfully implementing the Next Generation Science Standards
preparing competitive graduates who move easily into and within the broad and changing geoscience and environmental science workforce
pursuing education research that supports our ability to address these challenges enabling students to be effective problem-solvers in a rapidly changing and interconnected world

Abstract Deadline: March 1 
Working Group Application Deadline: February 16
Registration Deadline: April 13
