Goldschmidt Workshops 2014: Teaching Outside the Box

MAGNET was the proud sponsor and organizer of two professional development workshops held in association with the Goldschmidt conference in Sacramento (June 8-13, 2014). Over 100 delegates attended and actively participated in the two workshops entitled “Teaching and Learning Activities in Geochemistry: Examples and Applications” and “How Learning Works: Useful Techniques for Future Teachers.” The workshops were centered on evidence-based instructional methods developed through the Carl Wieman Science Education Initiative, a multi-year project at the University of British Columbia aimed at dramatically improving science education.
