The American Geosciences Institute (AGI) and the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) have teamed up to launch the Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI).
This joint effort seeks to build a portfolio of online learning opportunities to help support the professional development of prospective and early-career geoscientists as well as addressing topics of interest to the broader geoscience profession. GOLI courses will support both synchronous and asynchronous online learning, and count toward continuing education units (CEU's).
AGI and AIPG are pleased to announce the first three webinar events of GOLI. Details of the webinars are available at: http://www.aipg.org/e-mail/GOLI.html.
The topics, times, and presenters are:
Global Energy Resources: Current Trends and Short Term Predictions. January 18, 2012, 2:00 pm EST. Presented by Ronald J. Wallace, President-Elect, AIPG
Critical and Strategic Minerals: Concepts and Status. February 1, 2012, 2:00 pm EST. Presented by Jim Burnell, Colorado Geological Survey
Effective Power Point Presentations. February 22, 2012, 2:00 pm EST. Presented by Chris Mathewson, Texas A&M University
The American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) was founded in 1963 to certify the credentials of practicing geologists and to advocate on behalf of the profession. AIPG represents the professional interests of all practicing
geoscientists in every discipline. Its advocacy efforts are focused on the promotion of the role of geology and geologists in society.
