On the Cutting Edge is running a workshop for college and university faculty
on designing effective and innovative GIS and remote sensing courses. I hope
that you will consider applying and that you will also pass this
announcement on to interested colleagues. Details below, and please note
that the application deadline is Feb 1. Don't hesitate to email me if you
Workshop on Designing GIS and Remote Sensing Courses, Modules and Activities
for Teaching Geoscience Students
Offered by: the NSF-funded project On the Cutting Edge
Format: online, with two face-to-face opportunities
Application deadline: February 1, 2011; application must be made online at
Workshop details at:
We are looking for participants who are familiar with GIS or remote sensing
and are interested in designing or redesigning an effective and innovative
course in one of the following:
. a course specifically for geology majors (e.g., GIS for Geoscientists).
. a general GIS or remote sensing course incorporating one or more
geology-focused assignments or activities.
. a geology course with a GIS or remote sensing module (e.g., an intro
geology course, structural geology, petrology, hydrogeology).
Many GIS and remote sensing courses are taught in departments other than
geology departments and incorporate few geological examples, and many
geology majors graduate with little experience using GIS and remote sensing
to solve geology-related problems. This workshop is designed for 1) geology
faculty who want to develop GIS and remote sensing courses or modules for
their geology courses and 2) faculty who teach GIS and remote sensing in
other departments who want to develop relevant geology examples that can be
incorporated into general GIS and remote sensing courses to better meet the
needs of geology students and to broaden the experiences of other students.
This workshop will combine the experience of On the Cutting Edge in
successfully helping literally hundreds of faculty members design effective
courses and course materials with the resources developed in conjunction
with the summer 2011 Cutting Edge workshop Using GIS and Remote Sensing to
Teaching Geoscience in the 21st Century.
