  • Do you have a degree containing geology?
  • Are you a teacher or training to become one?
  • Would you like to teach geology in your school or college?

If so, apply for the ‘Teaching and Learning in Geoscience Education’ module at Keele University. Dates for the next event are to be confirmed. 

The Summer School for the Teaching and Learning in Geoscience Education module:
