UW-RF to Offer Two Interactive Courses

UW-River Falls is offering two interactive evening television courses during spring term, one in introductory geology and the other an international study seminar. Each will originate on the campus of UW-RF and be broadcast to three regional high schools.

Introductory geology will be taught in Room 329 of the Agriculture Science Building on Tuesday evenings, Jan. 22 through May 21, and it will be broadcast to Shell Lake and Cameron High Schools, as well as Northwood High School in Minong.

The course is an investigation of the planet earth, including the study of earth materials, the dynamic processes that have shaped and are shaping the earthıs surface and interior through time, and the influence of those materials and processes on humanity.

The international study seminar, offered by the College of Education and Professional Studies, will be taught in Room 329 of the Agriculture Science Building on Thursday evenings, Feb. 7 through May 2.

It will be broadcast to Barron and Siren High Schools, and Unity High School in Balsam Lake. Teachers in the class will learn how to establish links with teachers and classrooms in other countries as a way of testing projects and ideas. The seminar will combine group discussion, on-line discussions with teachers and schools that are linked to participants, web research and the use of web resources, and interactive links.
