Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) adjunct Geology instructor Lynsey LeMay is among 10 geoscience educators on an committee to establish a professional organization for geoscience instructors at two-year colleges. The new organization will be affiliated with the National Association of Geoscience Teachers (NAGT), a group created to enhance formal and informal earth science education for K-12 students and students at colleges and universities.
The group will provide special support for geoscience faculty at two-year colleges, promote opportunities to expand professional development, and build an online portal for 2YC geoscience educators. Additionally, it will establish best practices for geoscience education at two-year colleges and develop programs that will improve student learning and retention for diverse populations.
