In addition to researchers, many of us are also educators! William Gosling (this blog’s esteemed owner) will be leading a discussion of how to use the African Pollen Database (APD) for outreach and education! Please join us Wed, May 10 at 9am EDT (time zone converter). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the zoom link and instructions.
At this workshop, Will is going to focus on:
- Why incorporating paleoecology in education is important.
- Some theory about pedagogy related to paleoecology.
- Discussion of specific ideas targeted at different groups (e.g. undergraduates, informal education).
Do you have exercises and modules that you have incorporated paleoecological data into? If so, we’d love to hear some of your ideas as well!
