Education Section Conference Session Series

Members of the AGU Education Section work with regularly with internal collaborators and external partners to convene conference sessions for sharing new developments and ideas related to Earth and space science education.  Progress of ongoing work that benefits educators and students of all types, and in many different types of learning spaces, is also shared widely with diverse audiences through these conference sessions.

In this space within the AGU Education Section's website, we conveniently compile information about and links to recent conference sessions, in hopes of making Earth and space science education efforts and information more accessible to wider audiences and allowing more people to explore such efforts.  The information is organized chronologically, with short summaries and links for each session.

If you would like to involve the AGU Education Section in co-developing a conference session, please reach out to the Education Section Secretary, Vincent Tong (vincent.tong {at} northumbria {dot} ac {dot} uk or vincent.tong {at} ucl {dot} ac {dot} uk).
