Professional Development Opportunity for GIS Instructors
September 18, 2013
The National Council for Geographic Education (NCGE) is currently inviting applications to iGETT-Remote Sensing, an 18-month program for faculty who teach GIS at two-year colleges, and at high schools and four-year institutions that are interested in collaborating with two-year programs.
Hands-on instruction at two summer institutes and in monthly webinars will enable participants to teach workforce skills related to:
- Identifying, downloading, and analyzing federal remote sensing data, and
- Integrating remote sensing data with GIS
All expenses will be covered, except the cost of travel to the summer institutes, and all participants will receive stipends and software for their labs and their personal use. For more detailed information and an application to join the project in February 2014, see http://igett.delmar.edu and click on APPLICATION. (Due date: December 20, 2013)
Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training-Remote Sensing was funded in 2012 with a grant from the National Science Foundation (DUE# 1205069) to the NCGE, in collaboration with the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the U.S. Geological Survey Landsat Project, and the GeoTech Center. It builds on the success of the first iGETT project, conducted 2007–2012.
