Prof, Skinner, on her experience producing this course: "For those who are interested in creating a course it's been quite an enlightening experience that has really informed my teaching. So its both a personal and professional journey!"

The Inspark Teaching Network has partnered with Northern Arizona University (NAU) to bring you a new course promoting active learning using an inquiry-based curriculum. The course is called Living on the Edge: Geologic Risk on Earth, and is an introductory, liberal studies geology course centered on the question: “Where on Earth is the safest place to live?".
