The Grosvenor Center sponsors conferences and workshops of national and international scope in order to gather scholars from around the world to further research in geographic education. Students and faculty present original research at the annual meetings of the Association of American Geographers, National Council for Geographic Education, the Geographical Association, and European Association of Geographers.
The National Center for Research in Geography Education (NCRGE) has been involved in NSF funded research as to how geospatial content and skills can be integrated into pre service teacher training courses in math, science, and social studies. We are now expanding this experiment to involve in service teachers.
There is an opportunity for six (6) early career scholars* to be involved in this project. This will be an excellent chance to work on a funded project and to develop understanding, skills, and research techniques that will be of value in future NCRGE grant applications.
This work will be carried out in the period June 17-30 in San Marcos, TX. The exact dates will be announced shortly. There will be a $1,200 honorarium paid to each early career scholar, out of which all of your expenses must be paid. Consideration for additional funds may be requested for those with very large travel expenses.
Please fill out the attached application form and send it to us no later than May 15, 2015.
* An early career scholar is defined as a recent PhD graduate in geographic education in the first five years of his/her academic faculty position; or a PhD graduate student at the dissertation stage (ABD) with a research focus in an area of geography education.
