Comment on this resource
This collection of eight essays was written by participants at the 2005 On the Cutting Edge workshop entitled Understanding What Our Geoscience Students Are Learning: Observing and Assessing. One article draws parallels between the order-in-chaos of fractal mathematics and the order-in-chaos of what good teaching looks like. Another text summarizes design principles forged and some of the assessments ... Full description.
