Geoscience Education: Field Course Roundtable

In this special episode of Earth News Interviews, we host six guests in a round table discussion about field courses and their place in geoscience programs. Should they be required for a degree? What are some new methods in teaching the material traditionally learned in the field? How can we ensure people aren't excluded from both the opportunities field courses provide and from a career in the earth sciences?
