Learning is important—now more than ever. How do you equip yourself for changing times? How do you deepen and broaden your knowledge? Here is an informal place to find out what we’re doing, what we’re planning, and how we’re listening to you. Dr. Susan Nash, AAPG’s Director of Education and Professional Development, shares the new territory she’s introducing to AAPG with courses and dynamic new workshops. She is also planning more interactive, Web 2.0 offerings. So, give her your input about the best and worst of the wild and woolly world of webinars, Web-based training, and open courseware.

New energy technologies are making geological knowledge more important than ever, but often in unexpected ways. Welcome to an interview with Mike Stephenson, head of the British Geological Survey’s Decarbonisation Programme, which has a wide range of projects that range from geothermal, CCS, compressed air energy storage, to hydrogen storage and heat storage. (AAPG will feature presentations and panel discussions on this topic at ACE 2020 in Houston.)

In addition to the fundamental knowledge in the appropriate scientific disciplines, in the future, it will be more important than ever to be able to think creatively, and to bring communication and problem-solving skills to their work. Welcome to an interview with José Guzmán, Equinor, who shares with us his experience, lessons learned, and observations about the kinds of knowledge and skills that the future geoscientist will need. Jose also serves on the technical committee for AAPG’s Hedberg Research Conference on the Geology and Hydrocarbon Potential of the Circum Gulf of Mexico Pre-Salt Section, 4 – 6 of February in Mexico City.
