Would you like to showcase what you’re doing to researchers and practitioners working in all aspects of undergraduate Earth education?  Do you have activities, pedagogy or research to share?  Want some feedback and have your work be part of community discussions?

Then the Earth Educators Rendezvous needs YOU!

Submit an abstract by the March 1 deadline. 

While mornings of the Rendezvous will be devoted to workshops on a variety of topics, a critically important and integral part of the Rendezvous will be the afternoons devoted to oral and poster presentations by you. Contributed abstracts will be organized under two broad areas, but within these areas, sub-themes will be organized based on abstracts submitted. We encourage you to suggest sub-themes, and even organize related presentations as a set on the Abstract Submission Form.  We hope that organizing contributions under participant–suggested themes will foster conversation around topics central to those attending the meeting.

The two broad areas are:

  1. Teaching and Program Examples: exploration of the full range of what people are doing in their programs and classrooms. Share innovative and effective activities, techniques and course design as well as practices focused on particular topics.
  2. Education Research and Disciplinary-Based Education Research: research on learning and cognition, and investigations of how teaching and learning takes place in an earth science context, taking into account the particular priorities, practices and worldview of our discipline.

This is your chance to influence the organization of the meeting and make it especially relevant to your interests.

Please contact Laurel Goodell on behalf of the Rendezvous Contributed Program Committee for questions or more information about the contributed program at laurel@princeton.edu. 

Abstract Deadline: March 1
