Rendezvous--Registration is Now Open

Greetings colleagues-

Happy 2016!

We are excited to announce that the meeting registration is now open (
http://serc.carleton.edu/earth_rendezvous/2016/registration.html) and the
topics for morning workshops and afternoon events are finalized (
Morning workshops require registration and will be filled on a first come
first served basis.   Workshops are interactive with participants learning
from one another and from experts in formats that build on research-based
pedagogies. They provide an opportunity each day to synthesize ideas from
the afternoon sessions and put them to use in your own context. These
sessions feature time to work on your own introductory or upper-division
course, to plan new ways to strengthen your program, or to move forward
your education research agenda.

All participants registered for a particular day can attend either
afternoon mini-workshops or panel discussions, or can choose between
multiple sessions featuring teaching demonstrations and/or contributed
talks. We would like to make sure that the afternoon mini-workshops hit
areas of need and interest.  To that end, we invite your comment on the
proposed schedule: (
http://serc.carleton.edu/earth_rendezvous/2016/feedback.html).  We are
envisioning that specific topics (e.g. climate change), specific
pedagogical techniques (e.g. conceptests, gallery walks), and research
results will be presented and discussed in the oral and poster sessions (

Many of us have interests in multiple areas of Earth Science education in
addition to our discipline-specific interests, and the Rendezvous is
designed to allow exploration of these areas in ways not possible during
conventional scientific meetings. The Contributed Program is a critical
component to this end, and offers both a venue to present work and an
opportunity to see what is going on in the Earth Science education
community. The Rendezvous provides a unique opportunity to present and
discuss your work with an audience of Earth Educators. For more details and
to submit an abstract, poster or teaching demonstration visit: (
Deadline is March 1.

Lastly, we would like to encourage the use of the Rendezvous as a venue for
working meetings that allow groups to move forward their collaborative
project while capitalizing on the opportunity to learn from colleagues at
the Rendezvous.  If you are interested in running a concurrent working
meeting at the Rendezvous, you can apply to receive a $20 per day discount
for the members of your group and a meeting room.  We must receive your
application before February 1 to be considered for the working group
discount.  For more details and to apply visit:

We hope you will find the program to be engaging and flexible.  More
details about the plenary speakers and workshop leaders will be available
in the coming weeks.

We hope to see you in Madison!
