What Are Teachable Moments

COVID-19 Response: IRIS is committed to supporting educators in their need for “virtual” investigations and e-learning as a result of stay-at-home orders.  Over the next 10 weeks, IRIS will be releasing a weekly 'Teachable Moment' that offers an opportunity for teachers and students to explore various elements of seismology. These will be offered in addition to our regular earthquake summaries.

IRIS Teachable Moments presentations capture that unplanned opportunity to bring knowledge, insight, and critical thinking to the classroom following a newsworthy earthquake.

Each IRIS Teachable Moment:

Teachable Moments are a service of IRIS Education and Outreach and the University of Portland
