Series: Geoscience COVID Impacts Study

This is the second of our Fall webinar series on best practices and adaptations to pandemic-related impacts. In this webinar, we hear from academic faculty at 4-year and 2-year institutions about the strategies they used to overcome pandemic-related restrictions and impacts to their work, research, and teaching activities. Our panelists also delve into the temporary and lasting impacts of the pandemic, new opportunities that have arisen as a result of the pandemic and provide insights on how to navigate restrictions and setbacks.

Our speakers are:

  • Andrew Rindsberg, Professor, Department of Biological & Environmental Sciences, University of West Alabama
  • Kaatje van der Hoeven Kraft, Professor, Department of Sciences and Engineering, Whatcom Community College
  • Sarah Sheffield, Assistant Professor, Department of Geosciences, University of South Florida
  • Alyssa Abbey, Assistant Professor, Department of Geological Sciences, California State University Long Beach

Funding for this project is provided by the National Science Foundation (Award #2029570). The results and interpretation of the survey are the views of the American Geosciences Institute and not those of the National Science Foundation.
