Overcoming Pandemic-related Impacts in the Geosciences: Perspectives from Geoscience Employers

Thursday, December 8, 2022

This is the final webinar in our Fall webinar series that is highlighting best practices and adaptations to pandemic-related impacts. In this webinar, we will hear from geoscience employers on how their organizations have navigated pandemic-related challenges to maintain operational continuity, including how work environments and hiring and onboarding of new employees have changed, and if what employers are looking for in new hires has changed as a result of the pandemic.

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

Overcoming Pandemic-related Impacts in the Geosciences: Perspectives from Academic Faculty

Thursday, October 27, 2022

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.

Overcoming Pandemic-related Impacts in the Geosciences: Perspectives from Post-docs

Thursday, October 6, 2022

This is the first of our Fall webinar series on best practices and adaptations to pandemic-related impacts. In this webinar, we hear from two recent geoscience graduates, one of which who was a post-doctoral fellow during the pandemic, and a professor emeritus about the strategies they used to overcome pandemic-related restrictions and impacts to their work and research 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:

  • Dr. Arthur Sylvester, Professor Emeritus, Department of Earth Science, University of California, Santa Barbara
  • Dr. Curtis Walker, Project Scientist, Research Applications Laboratory, National Center for Atmospheric Research
  • Dr. Elizabeth (Libby) Ives, Geologist, Florence Bascom Geoscience Center, U.S. Geological Survey

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.

Geoscience COVID-19 Study to Focus on Permanent Changes from the Pandemic

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) is pleased to announce that its Geoscience COVID-19 Study has been extended into a third and final phase thanks to continued support by the National Science Foundation (Award #2029570). This final phase of the study will track the transition of instructional and work intervention strategies used during the pandemic into their adoption as permanent approaches used within academia and the workforce.
