Can we virtually immerse students in the hands-on field experiences to develop observational, spatial, and problem-solving skills?
Moderated by GSE associate dean of faculty affairs Shelley Goldman, please join us for a conversation with Bryan Brown, associate professor of education at Stanford Graduate School of Education and Ryan Petterson, adjunct lecturer and director of field education at Stanford School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences, on the development of virtual field trip experiences over the past year. With support from the University’s Transforming Learning Accelerator, Bryan and Ryan will share how a proliferation of tools, technologies, and practices increases accessibility to remote places, creates platforms for common understanding for students, and builds pathways to democratize the creation of new tools.
