ED31E - Science to Action: Learning Ecosystems as a Pathway to Resilient Communities and a Diverse Geoscience Workforce I Posters
Lecture Instructional

From school to play to work, education takes place in a wide variety of venues. By viewing education as taking place in an ecosystem that includes all of these venues, we can strengthen and connect learning. As noted by the Federal Committee on STEM Education in their 2018 report, the broad and inclusive engagement that develops through partnerships within a healthy STEM ecosystem builds stronger, more informed communities and a more diverse workforce with the skills needed by local employers. A learning ecosystem approach is particularly relevant in the geosciences as we seek to develop resilient communities that can respond to a changing environment. This session will discuss the learning ecosystem model and provide examples of ecosystems that include geoscience components.
