  • Higher Ed: Science 


Scott Linneman comes to Western from Lewis-Clark State College in Idaho where he taught half of the geology curriculum for eight years. Scott's academic background includes a B.A. from Carleton College in Minnesota and a Ph.D. from the University of Wyoming. His dissertation was on the igneous petrology and volcanology of Newberry Volcano in central Oregon. Scott still maintains some research into petrology, but his professional interests have expanded to include landslides, pre-service teacher science education, and the educational uses of the World Wide Web.

For the year of 2001, Scott was in South Africa on a Senior Fulbright Fellowship. He worked with the Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Department (SMATE) at the University of Port Elizabeth. While at UPE, Scott worked to incorporate some Earth Science into the teacher preparation courses and assessed the success of SMATE's in-service teacher projects. Joining him in South Africa was his wife, Rebecca Craven, their six year old son, Charlie, and three year old daughter, Dory.
