CUAHSI-NAGT Joint Cyberseminar Series

Description:

The National Association of Geoscience Teachers is an organization that works to support a diverse, inclusive, and thriving community of educators and education researchers to improve teaching and learning about the Earth through programming, professional development, publications, scholarships and awards, and advocacy. This webinar will provide an overview of the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT) to the CUAHSI community. Participants will get a brief introduction to NAGT and NAGT's Teach the Earth portal, which allows users to search and browse thousands of activities, as well as water-related modules developed through InTeGrate, a project focused on on integrating teaching about Earth across the undergraduate curriculum for a sustainable society. Additionally, an NAGT member will discuss Project EDDIE, an NSF supported NAGT-sponsored program that is developing flexible classroom teaching modules using large, publicly available datasets to engage students in STEM and improve their quantitative reasoning.
