Hello UNAVCO community

I just wanted to remind folks that you can sign up for the Teaching Geodesy Interest List <https://postal.unavco.org/mailman/listinfo/teaching-geodesy>. Through this you will receive periodic announcements about educational short courses, webinars, newer and/or improved teaching resources. Primary emphasis is undergraduate level, including both introductory- and majors-level, but some elements are relevant to secondary or graduate education as well. Many announcements will pertain to the GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html> project but other opportunities are also included.

For instance, you will hear about GETSI Virtual Mini Courses <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/workshops/virtual_mini_shortcourse/index.html>  which will continue to be offered in the coming months.
Teaching about Our Changing Climate: Data Behind Melting Ice and Changing Sea Level <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/workshops/virtual_mini_shortcourse/course_4/index.html> [Majors-level module]
Thursday January 28, 2021, 3-5pm ET
Registration <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/workshops/virtual_mini_shortcourse/course_4/registration.html> deadline: Tuesday January 26, 2021
Teaching about Measuring the Earth with GPS: Plate Motion and Changing Ice-Water [Introductory-level] - Week of Feb 8 - exact time TBD
Teaching about Monitoring Volcanoes and Communicating Risks  [Introductory-level] - Wednesday February 24, 2021, 11am-1pm ET
More will be scheduled for March and possibly April 2021

GETSI is funded by the US National Science Foundation. All modules are free and distributed online via the GETSI website <http://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/index.html>.

Let me know if you have any questions
-Beth
