Harpp, Karen S.; Sweeney, William J.
Journal of Geoscience Education, v50 n4 p410-18 Sep 2002
Reports on the design of a multi-week cooperative learning activity for an undergraduate introductory volcanology class which culminates in the simulation of a volcanic monitoring crisis. Suggests that this activity creates an effective and exciting learning environment in which students have the opportunity to apply theoretical concepts to a more realistic situation than is achieved in conventional classroom exercises.
