Geology faculty recognized for efforts in virtual accessible hydrologic field experiences
K-State geologist Aida Farough's efforts since COVID-19 in virtual and accessible education material in hydrologic sciences with the National Association of Geoscience Teachers and the International Association for Geoscience Diversity have been acknowledged with two invited presentations at two major national geology conferences.
Farough, a teaching assistant professor in the geology department, and her colleague, Bridget Mulvey, an associate professor in the School of Teaching, Learning and Curriculum Studies at Kent State University, have been invited to co-lead Virtual Hydrogeology/Environmental Field Experiences Working Group in March 2021.
Farough and Mulvey also developed a joint webinar series with the association and the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science focused on the services that the two organizations can provide for water education community. K-State is a university member organization of consortium. Recordings and more information about the webinars from this series can be found at the following links:
As a result of these efforts, Farough and Mulvey received invitations to present their efforts at the Geological Society of America annual meeting in October and the American Geophysical Union fall meeting in December, which is the largest international earth science meeting.
