Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: The process of writing something makes you think abou it... Forcing yourself to write something down about it, for most people, cements it a little bit better... I purposely avoid using powerpoint that has text on it so they have to write stuff down... The goals I have are less about the teaching them the specific geo facts of the places they visit. I certainly want them to learn those things, but what I feel is more important is the writing, is the ability to function outdoors, and be able to locate themselves, identify the rocks, plot things on maps, those kinds of things; be independent, even though it's hot and windy or whatever, and have the confidence to get good data that can be described.
Description: This item includes a segment of an instructor interview in a Writing Intensive course in Geology & Geophysics at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. The interview was conducted in 2014, and in this clip the interviewee is responding to the question 'Why do you think it is important that students in your classes engage with our place(s) through writing?'
