The GeoLumina concept was initiated by Greg Samways, supported by Cara Samways and Martin Round.
We are in the process of setting up a the Virtual Learning Environment taht will launch in January 2021 with the “Critical Thinking in Earth Sciences” course. Once the platform is established, we aim to offer the GeoLumina VLE to any independent geoscience trainer who has an eLearning course to offer.
If you like what we are trying to do and think you might have something to offer GeoLumina, please get in touch via the Contact Us form.
