The National Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence (NGTC), in partnership with Southwestern College (SWC) and San Diego State University (SDSU), will host the seventh annual NGTC Geospatial Technology Summer Workshop. The workshop will be held in the Richard Wright Spatial Analysis Lab (SAL lab) on the campus of SDSU from July 22 -24, 2015. The workshop will host high school and community college faculty who have previous experience using geospatial technology tools, including but not limited to one or more of the following: Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Big Data, and cartography. Workshop participants will design and produce geospatial curriculum that can be used within a classroom setting.
Workshop participants will receive:
1. A $700 stipend upon completion of the workshop and submission of curricular materials by the end of the workshop. The materials may still require polish for use in your class(es) at the end of the workshop, but the materials should be well on its way to being usable. Participants will receive assistance in the creation of their geospatial curriculum from professional geospatial instructors/curriculum developers (GISetc) and other workshop participants in a collaborative setting.
2. Hands-on workshops and presentations of cutting-edge geospatial technologies (including “best practices” in terms of pedagogy).
3. Immediate membership to the NGTC Community of Practice (CoP), including follow-up assistance after the workshop.
4. Free registration to the annual ESRI Education User Conference held from July 18 – 21, 2015 in San Diego, CA (a $175 value).
