ResClim All Staff Meeting at Hrutigruten, March 3-7, 2015

On Tuesday evening March 3rd, 48 participants boarded Hurtigruten MS Midnatsol in Bergen. Only 1 person missed the boat due to delayed flight and boarded in Ålesund.

Focus the first official meeting day was on "how do geoscientist learn?". To tackle this question, we invited assistant professor Ivar Nordmo from Department of Education. Both students and supervisors were challenged on how they learn and how they teach using group work and discussions.

Thursday started with a say in Trondheim, where everyone was free to see the city. Some went for sightseeing and some were sportier and went for a run. The rest of the day was devoted to student lectures, where 10 students gave talks about their project. In the evening, Tore Furevik gave a public lecture for the whole ship. About 200 came to listen to his talk about "A changing climate - impacts on the arctic and Europe".

A two hours poster session Friday morning was almost to little and a few actually started discussions earlier.
