The Education Section has 49 sessions for the 2021 Fall Meeting
that are waiting for you! To help everyone find sessions easily, we developed a rough guide to overarching categories that arose from the sessions themselves. We chose identifiers based on themes we saw in the session descriptions. When session descriptions fit into more than one theme, we indicated the two primary themes that appeared to fit them best (conveners, we hope you agree!). The themes show the range in which education impacts the AGU community – from research to practice, partnership building to workforce development – the Education Section has a strong foothold at the Fall Meeting.A few notes to consider:
ER (Earth and Space Science Education Research) has historically been small and lonely within AGU, and the new Section seeks to remedy that situation. We are hoping to grow this research-based theme in coming years.
SP (SPecial Sessions) is a broad umbrella that includes long-running sessions that highlight pre-college and undergraduate student research, as well as sessions that offer non-traditional creative outlets. We also have a new session (ED040
) that aligns to our newly established Section award
We offer kudos to the Climate Literacy community, whose long-standing targeted approach to session submissions elevated this theme. A model to follow for other education community groups!
Please take a look, explore, and share your feedback with us. We welcome abstract submissions
through 4 August 2021
