The Education section was established to provide a transdisciplinary home and voice for educators and education researchers, enhancing connectivity across all of the Earth and space sciences by providing educational expertise, scholarship, and partnership development with other organizations and the public. It catalyzes and shapes Earth and space science education activities to develop a diverse Earth and space science talent pool, improve global scientific literacy, and increase access to scholarship and collaboration in Earth and space education research and practice.
The AGU Leadership Development/Governance Committee is in the process of selecting founding leaders for the Education section and working on the transition to elected leadership in the next year. When joining AGU or renewing their 2019 membership, AGU members can now select Education as their primary or secondary section. We hope you will join the Education section and volunteer for the unique opportunity to provide input and help shape the future of the discipline.
