The Undergraduate Field Experiences Research Network (UFERN) is pleased to announce the April 2020 webinar in our ongoing series focused on 21st-century field education.
Please join us on April 8th at 1 pm PDT/4 pm EDT/April 9th 8am NZST
The webinar will feature presenters, Dr. Benjamin Kennedy and Dr. Jonathan Davidson. Possibly a very timely webinar as many of us are facing decisions about moving classes and resources online. Ben and Johnathan will present, Virtually Field tripping- what works?
They have experience and data to support field learning experiences brought to students when learning in situ is not possible.

Dr. Kennedy, Associate Professor in Physical Volcanology at the University of Canterbury and Dr. Jonathan Davidson, Crustal Modelling Technician at the University of Canterbury will join us from New Zealand for the webinar and share their expertise and insights on an innovative educational approach, virtual field trips, and hi-tech gaming, as a way to gain access to otherwise inaccessible situations or localities, such as students drilling into a magma chamber.
