Dear colleagues,

Here's a reminder about the workshop on Teaching Introductory Geoscience 
Courses in the 21st Century (one of this year's Cutting Edge 
workshops).  Please help us publicize this opportunity by forwarding the 
email to others who might be interested.

Teaching Introductory Geoscience Courses in the 21st Century
July 14-17, 2008
Carleton College, Northfield MN

The workshop will showcase the innovative and exciting teaching taking 
place in introductory courses today and will provide a forum to discuss 
strategies for having a long-term impact on students, for teaching the 
process of science, and for improving student learning. Workshop content 
and activities will be applicable to a range of introductory earth science 
courses, such as physical and historical geology, environmental science, 
oceanography, natural hazards, as well as courses that follow a regional or 
topical theme. Participants will help to build an on-line collection of 
teaching resources and materials related to teaching introductory 
geoscience courses.  More information about the workshop at the site given 

This workshop will be patterned after the successful workshops on Teaching 
Mineralogy (1996), Teaching Petrology (2003), Teaching Structural Geology 
(2004), Teaching Hydrogeology (2005), Teaching Sedimentary Geology (2006), 
and Teaching Geophysics (2007)
