With funding from the National Science Foundation and other organizations, a group of dedicated geomorphologists based at the University of Vermont are working on a new type of geomorphology textbook. The goal of this project is create a textbook that is "extensively vetted by the community" and which also "includes all new, pedagogically-focused art work, and is linked to freely accessible collections of community-authored electronic resources and photographs." Visitors to this site can click on the "See all the Vignettes" link on the homepage to learn about some of the case studies that will be included in the book. These vignettes cover a range of topics in the field, and they include in-class activities and lesson plans. Moving on, visitors can click on the "Find an image" look through their image database. Educators will also appreciate the "Reconsidering the Textbook" which contains findings from a 2006 workshop on the future of the science textbook. Finally, visitors can also learn about upcoming geomorphology workshops sponsored by the group.
