Mentoring in GIS:  New Article in xyHT Magazine

Blog Post created by jkerski-esristaff Employee on Dec 12, 2019

As a lifelong geomentor and someone who wholeheartedly believes in education and mentoring, I am happy to announce that a new article of mine on this topic is now available in xyHT Magazine:  https://www.xyht.com/spatial-itgis/mentorings-evolution-in-gis/.  In the article I explore how learning and mentoring have changed with the evolution of GIS, how personal networks still matter, and what career mentoring is and how it can be of benefit.  I then investigate ways that mentoring in education works in venues such as Nepris and Mentored Pathways, and I close with a focus on geomentoring and assisting schools and those affected by natural disasters, using examples from geomentors.net and URISA's GIS Corps.  Another article in this series from a surveying point of view is here.  My other articles about GIS in education in xyHT Magazine are here

 

I look forward to your comments about this article and about this important topic!
