Joanne Urquhart

Laboratory Instructor in Earth and Oceanographic Science
Joanne teaches laboratories for EOS introductory courses and conducts field research to support course projects.  Projects range from nearby locations in the Portland area to Lubec in downeast Maine and she works with students to investigate the geology of many islands, peninsulas, and beaches in between. With emphasis on the outdoor natural laboratory, the curriculum is primarily field-based and engages students to explore intersections with geology and the way we live. She actively integrates learning strategies from Bowdoin’s Baldwin Center for Learning and Teaching to help students reach their academic potential.
