TESEP's first series of professional development workshops, entitled The Challenging Earth, is now highly acclaimed and well established. The topics for the workshops were selected from those nominated in an Australia wide survey of teachers. They reflect topical issues and teacher's needs and are designed to mesh with existing curriculum requirements in all states (curriculum links provided). The nine topics are

pointer  PD1: Round and Round with Rocks
     (The rock cycle, ore bodies and crustal geology)
pointer  PD2: Riding the Climate Roller Coaster (climate change)
pointer  PD3: Greening coal (carbon sequestration)
pointer  PD4: Fossil sunlight (the hydrocarbon story)
pointer  PD5: Wet rocks (ground water)
pointer  PD6: Hot rocks (geothermal energy)
pointer  PD7: Our Place in Space (Astronomy for the curriculum)
pointer  PD8: Powerful stuff (the energy debate)
pointer  PD9: Plate Tectonics (the reason for the Challenging Earth)

TESEP is constantly developing new material and the next round includes

pointer  A Plate Tectonics wall poster
pointer  On-line interactive webinar delivery of PDs
pointer  Ongoing delivery of PDs in new locations
      across regional Australia
pointer  Development of national case studies to supplement
