Ben Cowie on introducing first-year geoscience students to the primary scientific literature in a large classroom setting

What a fantastic series of posts by Dr. Ben Cowie, a geology prof here at the UofC. He worked with his first-year undergrads, on going to primary research lit, rather than just settling for teh wikarpedia.

  • Part 1: the motivation and desire to initiate this program
  • Part 2: the implementation of the work
  • Part 3: details of how the students handled the material and what the most commonly used strategies were for the students

so good. so happy he's teaching here at UCalgary, and that he's blogging the stuff he's doing.
