Incorporating Place and Culture in Geoscience Education
All ethnic minority groups in North America are poorly represented in both the academic and professional study and practice of the Earth Sciences. Fortunately, many efforts are underway to increase minority participation in the geosciences. This is most often accomplished through the incorporation of place-based, culturally specific knowledge, and understanding of the local environment and geologic setting into the teaching of Earth Science. The panelists will highlight the successes of these programs, ongoing strategies that are under development, and continuing problems that face minority students in the Earth Sciences. Panel:
Stephen C. Semken, Director, Navajo Dryland Environments Laboratory, Din College, Shiprock, Navajo Nation, New Mexico
Eric Riggs, Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University, San Diego, California
