2018 (see original presentation & discussion)


By the time today's undergraduates send their children to college, there will be more than eight billion people on Earth. Our climate will be punctuated by extreme weather events, metropolitan areas may have experienced a devastating earthquake or volcanic eruption and energy resources will be strained. This world requires both an Earth literate public and a workforce that can bring geoscience to bear on tough societal issues. Achieving these goals requires a revolution in how geo-education is perceived and practiced, as well as the roles that learning about the Earth play in the broader curriculum in institutions of higher education.

The InTeGrate STEP Center is a community effort developing materials and strategies for faculty and instructors teaching about Earth for a sustainable future and supporting sustainability beyond the classroom by developing models for programmatic change at the departmental or institutional level.  InTeGrate materials engage students in understanding the earth system as it intertwines with key societal issues. They challenge students to address interdisciplinary problems, engage in geoscientific habits of mind, work with authentic geoscience data and develop system thinking. Our strong and growing community of educators are adopting and adapting the InTeGrate materials and approaches to bring learning about Earth into novel, interdisciplinary settings across the country, working together to connect sustainability to the world we live in.
