Virtual Field Experiences in Geoscience Education: Resources from our GSA 2011 Short Course

Earlier this month, Frank Granshaw, Richard Kissel and Don Duggan-Haas convened a one-day short course in conjunction with the Geological Society of America's Annual Meeting in Minneapolis. It was a great day of networking and resource-sharing. This post is the agenda of that day with links to resources from each instructor.
