14.01.2021 - SoTL

Presenter(s): Katarina Mårtensson

SoTL, scholarship of teaching and learning, is gaining ground globally as an approach to develop teaching and learning in higher education. But what is it? What does it mean to engage in SoTL? How can academics do that in different disciplines? What’s in this for the students, and for higher education departments and institutions? In this seminar these and similar questions will be discussed, framed in a presentation of some of the international research, experiences and examples of SoTL.

18.02.2021 - Internship

Presenter(s): Oda Bjørnsdatter, Ingvild Lorentzen, Iver Martens

GeoInternship is a new program at The University of Tromsø that has taken new challenges at hand. Through the institute of geoscience a project named the GeoIntern has applied and received funding from two internal and one external source (DIKU). We were happy to start the new program for the 3rd. year bachelorstudents, this spring at UiT. The project is led by lecturer and PD leader Iver Martens, and will be launched at UiB and UiO the coming fall semester. Several important skills and knowledge gaps in the zone between business and academia will be covered through 12 lectures, cases and seminars in the course. The first part of the course takes knowledge and skill mapping into consideration. The fact that several geoscientists struggle to land that first relevant job after their studies is something we aim to challenge. Oda Bjørnsdatter and Ingvild Lorentzen have a long experience with this types of thinking, and the field of career learning. They have been giving great contributions to the development of the new program, and they will navigate us through the wilderness of mapping and teaching in the field of skills and knowledge.

04.11.2021 - iEarth research group - inquiry that forms educational change?

This talk outlines the aim, activities, people, output and challenges of the iEarth Research Group (ERG) that started earlier this year as doctoral students and staff were recruited to iEarth. ERG constitutes a joint research school for the doctoral students in iEarth and a platform where academics engage in higher education research in the geoscience area. Challenges to this research include geographical and institutional obstacles, doing research in a pristine educational research field, ethical considerations when students are studied by staff, and above all the main quest: how will ERG research outcomes inform educational development in the Geosciences?

11.11.2021 - DIY "weather stations" and "ArcGIS Fieldmaps app".

Harald Sodemann: “DIY værstasjoner hjemme for grensesprengende læring":

With the DIY project we tried to increase motivation directly and to stay in touch with students during one semester in particular where they were completely busy with lectures in mathematics and physics i.e., outside of our own institute.
Harald Sodemann is a Professor in meteorology at the Geophysical Institute at UiB, where he teaches several courses on weather forecasting and field-based learning.

Benjamin Robson: “Using ArcGIS FieldMaps to collect geospatial data in the field”:

ArcGIS Fieldmaps is an app that allows users to perform field mapping, collect geotagged photographs and field notes, and view geospatial imagery such as satellite imagery, LiDAR terrain models, and radar data in the field. Data collected is saved to the cloud and can later be manipulated and interpreted in GIS. I will present how FieldMaps can be used, how to set up a project, and share some experiences using it for the first time on a field course this Autumn.
Benjamin Robson in Associate Professor in Geomatics at the Department of Earth Science (UiB) and specialises in using remote sensing to characterise and assess changes in glacial and periglacial landscapes.

18.11.2021 - Geoscience Education and Technology - before and during pandemic

Technology is important in geoscience education. This technology, whether microscopes computer programming/software, laboratory experiments or apps for field work, raises a number of fundamental questions:
what is the best way to teach a certain technology, can teaching with technology be prioritized and categorized etc.
In this talk we present preliminary results of two surveys of technology and geoscience education held among university level geoscience teachers. The first survey was held in 2017, the second one in 2021. The results includethe effects of the pandemic on teaching and technology.
Henk Keers is associate professor in geophysics at UiB. The work presented here was conducted with his collaborators Elise Stordahl (UiB), Björn Nyberg (UiB) and Karen Mair (UiO) and is funded by iEarth.
