GIS and Academia Forum
Geographic information system (GIS) software is an expanding and evolving technology that has become an essential tool in government and business. Many educational professionals believe that GIS acts as a catalyst for creative thought and problem-solving skills and facilitates spatial reasoning that supports higher levels of learning among students. There has been a tremendous growth of GIS programs in the educational sector over the past 25 years. Demand by the workforce for GIS education and training and the spread of GIS as a tool across disciplines are two of the factors driving this growth.
While the rapid growth in GIS has presented educators with exciting challenges and opportunities, it has also added logistical, administrative, pedagogical, and curriculum demands, that must be considered when implementing a Geospatial education program.
Attend this session to understand what it takes to develop and implement a successful and sustainable Geospatial program across disciplines as per the requirements by the industry.
