Teachers Invited to Online Earthquake Workshop

Teachers Invited to Online Earthquake Workshop


​Geological Survey Ireland, in collaboration with the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies (DIAS), and the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG), is pleased to announce a free online workshop open to all teachers. 

The workshop, titled "Earthquakes: Literally Earth Shattering News", will take place on Tuesday, 19 March, as part of the Oide Creativity’s STE(A)M workshop series 2024. The workshop aims to provide teachers with innovative approaches to teaching the fundamentals of earthquakes. While it is primarily aimed at Junior Cycle teachers, the lesson is open to all and the lesson can be easily adapted for other levels. The session is designed to be inclusive, accommodating various learning styles, not just those oriented towards science.

STE(A)M, similar to STEM, refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. However, STE(A)M also incorporates the Arts. These workshops emphasize interdisciplinary responses to challenges in both specific subjects and cross-curricular contexts.

This professional development opportunity is part of a series of workshops presented by the Creative Ireland Programme and Oide, intended to enhance teacher engagement with the arts and learning. The initiative is a continuation of a pilot partnership initiative between the Arts Council and JCT, which began in 2014.

These elective workshops are open to educators of all subjects. To register for the FREE "Earthquakes: Literally Earth Shattering News" workshop, please follow this link.
