CGGE workshops are excellent opportunities to learn about the project and how you can use CGGE modules with your students. With additional support from NSF, the AAG has also been able to offer week-long regional workshops designed to produce new case studies and geography educational networks in different world regions, most recently in Chile (2007), Singapore (2010), India (2012), and Japan (2012).
CGGE Bangalore workshop. March 12-16, 2012.
Here are some comments from participants in past workshops:
"A broad but important outcome was simply for me to see how professional geographers work, what they do, discuss, etc. It was consistently a challenge to be coming from a different perspective, but the encouragement and respect for a student viewpoint from the delegates and organizers made this a good experience for me." (US undergraduate student participant)
"International collaboration in practice - the experience itself was very rewarding." (Singapore graduate student participant)
"Meeting and working with my fellow delegates was certainly a wonderful experience. What an incredibly diverse and talented group! I've learned a great deal on how to do international collaborations. This experience has been one of the most useful and satisfactory in my professional career." (US faculty participant)
