New Summer Geology Workshop for Teachers

The Department of Earth Science with the support of the Iowa Limestone Producers Association are pleased to announce a new learning experience for Iowa's teachers.  Teachers will be able to earn two units of graduate credit and learn about Iowa geological resources through an activity-based short course through the University of Northern Iowa.  Teachers participate in several exciting hands on activities in the field and meet other Earth science teachers from across the state. Discuss what i€™s working and what i€™s not in your classrooms and share your tried and true methods for teaching about the geology of Iowa.

During the spring semester, content will be delivered via Adobe Connect (March 1 - May 17).  This will be followed by an on-campus component on July 13-15 to provide additional experiences for the teachers.  Applications for the workshop are due February 1, 2014.
