Goldschmidt Workshops 2014: Teaching Outside the Box

June 8–13, 2014 — Sacramento, California

MAGNET was the proud sponsor and organizer of two professional development workshops held in association with the Goldschmidt conference in Sacramento.


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.
