Creating Spaces for Geoscientists with Disabilities to Thrive

There are a small number of programs with inclusive field opportunities for students with disabilities, such as the University of Arizona’s Accessible Earth and the Enabling Remote Activity (ERA) project at the Open University. Building on the technology-based approach of the ERA project, the University of Florida is developing a lending library of tech tools to improve accessibility of existing field courses. Some geoscience programs are developing alternatives to on-location fieldwork, such as the University of Leeds’s Virtual Landscapes and Western Washington University’s Lab Camp.
