TESEP conference presentations
In addition to running day-long professional development workshops, TESEP also attends teacher and allied professional conferences where we run workshops and present information about TESEP to our peers in both the teacher and geoscientist realms.
TESEP is a program that sits within the operations of the Australian Science Teachers Association (ASTA). ASTA's annual national conference, CONASTA, is a natural venue for us to run short-course workshops and present information to the registrants in oral sessions and in trade booth spaces. Since its inception TESEP has attended CONASTA!

Greg also met with teachers, academics, UNESCO administrators and politicans in other settings to discuss geoscience education and outreach methods, including TESEP's approach to delivering Professional Development to teachers.
