TC Chair: Marina Pantazidou

TC306 focuses on the fundamentals of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering, i.e. topics typically covered in undergraduate curricula. Its primary, but not exclusive, audience is currently active, past and future geotechnical engineering educators.
Updated information on the activities of TC306 is reported in this main web portal hosted by ISSMGE. Other dissemination avenues include the following:
1.1) A web repository and forum for discussions (TC306 GeoWorld website);
1.2) Online access to proceedings of the TC306 conferences through the ISSMGE Online Library;
1.3) A series of “Case Study Webinars” (TC306 YouTube channel).
