  Information - ES3 Global Geoscience Education: Projects and Best Practices

Event Information
By its very nature, earth and space science education is global. Earth systems like the carbon and hydrologic cycles and earth processes such as natural hazards and plate tectonics are not constrained by national boundaries. This commonality links the teaching of earth and space education around the globe. Significant regional and national differences do exist in how the earth and space sciences are taught, however, from these differences a rich catalog of teaching strategies and resources has been developed. This session will highlight examples of the best practices that are currently in place for both the training of earth and space science teachers and for the approaches that these teachers use to educate the global student pool. Particular emphasis will be placed on examples of best practices that invoke inquiry-based and experiential-learning approaches to the teaching of earth and space science concepts
