EARS 201 Fundamentals and Pedagogy in Earth Sciences

This course aims to develop some of the fundamental concepts and skills of geology as well as to provide teaching experience. We will use the rich geological history of New England as our training ground for learning and reviewing geologic concepts and practicing field skills. In order to provide ample background, we will read classic texts and recent, cutting-edge papers on the geology of New England. We will also conduct local and regional field trips to investigate exposures and hone field skills. In preparation for graduate teaching responsibilities, as well as for further careers in teaching, we will learn about and discuss pedagogy. Students will develop and present an introductory-level earth sciences lecture and provide critiques of other students’ presentations. Finally, this course will help focus students’ graduate research projects through class discussions and final presentations. Not open to undergraduates. Staff.
