  Information - ES2 Original ideas for teaching on Earth Sciences

Event Information
Teaching courses in various disciplines of Earth Science requires continuous innovation, as new concepts and new generations of students change the dynamics of knowledge transfer between teachers and students. Excellent teachers are always looking for new ideas and strategies that facilitate creative thinking in students, and improve the transfer of ideas in the classroom. New ideas and strategies are usually developed, tested, and applied by teachers working in a wide variety of colleges and universities, but little of this knowledge or results of these experiences is disseminated to other teachers.
The session on ORIGINAL IDEAS FOR TEACHING EARTH SCIENCES is devoted to presenting teaching techniques and ideas that teachers from different regions and academic backgrounds have found effective in teaching Earth Science courses. Many teachers have worked for decades with innovative and highly successful strategies, but little is known outside of their lecture rooms. During the EGU2008 we will have the chance to share their experiences. We welcome abstracts on original ideas for teaching all aspects of Earth Science courses, with special emphasis on field and excursion strategies, computer and laboratory teaching, and modelling. If enough interest is shown, we will consider publishing selected paper as a special issue of an international peer-reviewed journal.
