The TWP brings leaders in environmental, sustainability, and geoscience education right to your campus, regional, or national event. The workshops are facilitated by individuals from an impressive roster of more than 45 leaders in their fields. Workshops are available in six themes:

  • Building Stronger Geoscience and Environmental Science Departments and Programs
  • Strengthening your Cross-campus Environmental and Sustainability Programs
  • Strengthening Earth Science in Teacher Education
  • Supporting the Success of All Students
  • Strengthening Your Intro or Upper-Division Course
  • Making Your Course More Effective and Societally Relevant

At the completion of the workshop, participants will be equipped with:

  • Peer-tested strategies and approaches
  • A collection of department best-practices, curricula, courses, modules, and activities
  • Departmental, program, or individual action plans for moving forward
