AGI Launches Education GeoSource – an Expanded Collection of Earth Science Teaching Resources

Posted: October 2, 2018

What's new for science educators and students heading back to school this fall? The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is excited to launch Education GeoSource, the most comprehensive collection of Earth science educational resources available online.

Unveiled just in time to help teachers prepare for Earth Science Week (October 14-20, 2018), Education GeoSource provides Earth science educational activities, curricula, teacher professional development, education standards, virtual field trips, videos and animations, assessment materials, funding opportunities, award information, organization contacts, and additional resources.

Education GeoSource (formerly the Education Resources Network) now boasts enhanced functionality, offers more than 3,500 resources, and is growing week by week. The website makes it easier than ever to find what you’re seeking, for example, allowing users to search for activities by a given standard of the Next Generation Science Standards.

A major feature of AGI's Center for Geoscience & Society, the website's free geoscience education resources, curated from a variety of sources, are available with the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger. Join the up to 4,000 visitors a month who come to Education GeoSource to find useful resources.

To visit Education GeoSource, simply go to https://egs.americangeosciences.org. Find the geoscience education resources you're seeking, review our collections, suggest additional resources, and help us strengthen the collection!

 

Miami University’s Project Dragonfly is Accepting Applications for 2019 Earth Expeditions Graduate Courses

Posted: October 2, 2018
Miami University’s Project Dragonfly is accepting applications for 2019 Earth Expeditions graduate courses that offer extraordinary experiences in 16 countries throughout the world.
Earth Expeditions can build toward the Global Field Program (GFP), a master's degree that combines summer field courses worldwide with web learning communities so that students can complete the GFP master's part-time from anywhere in the United States or abroad.
 
Project Dragonfly also offers the Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) master's degree that combines web instruction from Miami University with experiential learning and field study through several AIP Master Institutions in the U.S. Applications for Miami's 2019 cohorts are being accepted now with place-based experiences provided at zoos in Chicago, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, New York, San Diego, Seattle, and our newest affiliate learning institution, St. Louis.
 
Graduate tuition for all programs is greatly reduced because of support from Miami University.
