> Issues related to water resources and sustainability are topics that showcase the interactions between geoscience, engineering, policy, and society. Teaching about these topics helps students see the connections between geoscience and their daily lives. 
> 
> This webinar will highlight teaching strategies and examples ranging from in-class activities to capstone projects that help student consider water resources and sustainability using real data. GETSI editor, Beth Pratt-Sitaula will discuss the roles of InTeGrate and GETSI in developing geoscience materials that address societal issues. Bruce Douglas, a GETSI module author, will discuss the module, "Measuring Water Resources with GPS, Gravity, and Traditional Methods". Gigi Richard, an InTeGrate module author, will discuss the module, "Water Sustainability in Cities". The webinar will include 30 minutes of presentations and 25 minutes of discussion. Participants are encouraged to both ask questions of the presenters and discuss their own experiences regarding water resources and sustainability.
