FALL MEETING WORKSHOPS

Getting Started in Undergraduate Research Workshop

Designed for new and future geosciences faculty, this workshop will cover funding opportunities (including National Science Foundation), project selection and mentoring of undergraduates, and institutional support for undergraduate research.

Improving Your Success for AGU Honors: Tips, Tools and Tactics
Monday, 15 December, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
AGU’s Honors and Recognition Committee, in partnership with ESWN (Earth Science Women’s Network) and AGU volunteers, will host this inaugural workshop. The workshop is focused on discussing best practices for nominating or being nominated for AGU honors and will offer tools, tips and tactics. The three topics of the workshop are: (1) how to increase diversity of nominations; (2) how to submit a successful nomination from the nominator’s perspective; and 3) what constitutes a good nomination package from a selection committee’s perspective. The workshop is open to all AGU members and stakeholders. It is part of a larger AGU effort to support all nominators and nominees and strengthen the long-term diversity of nominations and awardees of AGU’s honors and recognition program. Please join us for light snacks, drinks and a healthy collaborative discussion with your colleagues!

How to Run an Effective and Inclusive REU Program
Monday, 15 December, 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM
This hands-on workshop is for those running Research Experiences for Undergraduates (GEO REU) programs who want tips on running a successful REU or who want to delve more deeply into specific issues ranging from tips on working with small, under-resourced minority-serving institutions or community colleges to managing applications and selecting a diverse cohort.

Getting the Most Out Of Your Introductory Course
Tuesday, 16 December, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Introductory courses in the geosciences play a pivotal role in undergraduate education. They serve as recruiting grounds for majors and future professionals, provide critical experiences in geosciences. This workshop builds on a virtual workshop, and will facilitate discussion, exchange of information, and sharing of resources to get the most out of your introductory courses.

Broadening Access to the Earth and Environmental Sciences
Wednesday, 17 December, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Geoscience has the lowest ethnic diversity in its graduating student population of any STEM discipline. This workshop will discuss strategies departments and programs are using to recruit and retain a more diverse student population.
