GOLI


Geoscience Online Learning Initiative https://www.americangeosciences.org/workforce/goli


The Geoscience Online Learning Initiative (GOLI) is an initiative by the American Geosciences Institute, started in cooperation with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, to provide a platform for asyn- chronous, life-long learning and continuing education opportunities in the geosciences. GOLI consists of live webinar events and self-paced asynchronous online courses. Interested individuals can register to attend live webinar events where participants interact with content experts and earn CEUs for their attendance. GOLI online courses provide learners with the flexibility to actively self-pace their progress, since asynchronous courses do not have a set schedule like traditional academic semester-based courses. GOLI online courses are brought to you via the OpenEdX Learning Man- agement System (LMS) through which learners are able to browse course descriptions, enroll in specific courses, access content, and complete any course free of charge. Learners who complete courses offered through the GOLI platform with a passing grade of 70% or higher are eligible to purchase Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for a nominal fee.


Sample courses:


• Assessing, Mitigating, and Communicating Flood Risk


• Communicating Cascadia’s Earthquake Risk


• Basics of Seismic Petroleum Exploration for New Hires


• Planning for Coastal Storm and Erosion Hazards


• Best Practices in Mineral Resource Estimation & Reporting


• Fundamentals of Professional Ethics: Elements and Examples
