2014 Heads and Chairs Meeting

19th Biennial Joint AMS/AGU Heads and Chairs Meeting
UCAR Center Green Building 1, 3080 Center Green Drive, Center Auditorium, Boulder, CO

Theme: “Best Practices: Meeting the Challenges Facing Academic Geoscience Programs”

The 2014 AMS/AGU Joint Heads and Chairs Meeting will highlight successful approaches to handle the complex issues commonly faced by academic programs in the geosciences. Sessions will include best practices for: involving contingent (e.g., non-tenured or adjunct) faculty; balancing lecture-based vs. flipped, online and massive open online courses; reducing risks and liabilities related to field trips and field campaigns; and expanding funding opportunities beyond traditional sources. Invited presentations and panel discussions will focus on these topics as well as job market trends, employers’
perspectives on the skills of recent geoscience graduates, and the upcoming 2015 revision of the AMS Statement on the Bachelor’s Degree in Atmospheric Science. For further information, contact co-chairs Richard Wagner, wagnerri@msudenver.edu or John Horel, john.horel@utah.edu.
