Dr. Anne Egger
Executive Committee Liaison for the PNW NAGT Section
Anne Egger is an assistant professor at Central Washington University, where she holds a joint appointment in Geological Sciences and Science Education. This joint appointment reflects her research interests: her geologic research is focused on the tectonic development of the western margin of the Basin and Range province, and her geoscience education research is focused on developing curricular materials that incorporate societal issues, data, and geoscientific thinking.
She is particularly interested in emphasizing the connections between research and education at all levels: incorporating scientific research results into science classes, reforming teaching based on scientific results, and involving students in authentic scientific experiences. She is currently second vice-president at NAGT.
