Summer Institute: Let’s Explore Our Place!

08/13/2018 @ 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Let’s Explore Our Place! The Oregon Explorer Digital Library

Oregon Explorer ( is Oregon’s official and free online resource you can use for your students to learn about their place, and compare it with other places in Oregon.  The resource focuses on natural resources and environment, as well as demographic and other human dimensions of any location in Oregon. The session will introduce you to Oregon Explorer, and help you plan to use as a standalone exercise or — preferably — as preparation for field adventures that build on questions and hypotheses students formulate via Oregon Explorer.
