Geoscience Education - I have multiple educational interests in active e-learning and engaging urban students. I have worked on creating coursework that uses technology to enhance classroom experiences, including the use of classroom response systems, online assignments with automatic feedback, Google Earth or Excel activities, and fully online courses. More recently, I have been focused on engaging urban and diverse student populations in the geosciences through active teaching practices, relevant course content, and career knowledge.
