A webinar with Jill Schneiderman, Professor of Earth Science, Vassar College. Original airdate: Wednesday, January 25, 2012.

In this webinar, Jill Schneiderman will give examples of different types of contemplative practices that she has used in a variety of geoscience courses. The courses in which she has used these techniques range from introductory earth science to seminars on environmental justice. Earth science content such as geologic time, chemical and physical weathering, and characteristics for distinguishing different mineral groups can be illuminated with contemplative techniques.
