The Sixth Annual NGTC Geospatial Technology Summer Workshop, 2014
The National Geospatial Technology Center of Excellence, in partnership with Southwestern College (SWC) and San Diego State University (SDSU), will host the sixth annual NGTC Geospatial Technology Summer Workshop. The workshop will be held in the brand new Geospatial Technology Lab on the campus of SDSU from July 8 -10, 2014.
The workshop will host high school and community college faculty who have previous experience using geospatial technology tools, including but not limited to one more of the following: Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), Global Positioning Systems (GPS), and cartography. Workshop participants will design and produce geospatial curriculum that can be used within a classroom setting.
This year’s participants will be required to submit a proposal to attend the workshop.
The proposal should include:
1. A Curriculum Vitae (maximum 2 pages) highlighting your interest in geospatial tools.
2. A Word document with the following information:
a. A statement describing your experiences using geospatial tools and what tools you have used (for example, ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Online, mobile phones apps, digital probeware, digital imagery, Google Earth, etc.).
b. A list of the coursework that you teach on a regular basis (this includes geospatial specific classes as well as other courses that you teach), or a list of course(s) that you will be teaching.
c. A proposed classroom-based project that you would like to create (or augment) during your time at the workshop. Please limit this portion of the proposal to no more than 300 words (projects can range from a single class activity to a longer project).
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 classes at the end of the workshop, but they should be well on their way to being usable.
2. Assistance in the creation of a geospatial project to be used in your classes.
3. Free registration to the annual ESRI Education User Conference held from July 12 – 15, 2014 in San Diego, CA (a $175 value).
Participants will need to arrange and pay for their own transportation and lodging. If you are interested in attending the workshop, or learning more about it, please contact either Professor Ken Yanow (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Ming Tsou (email@example.com). Applications will be accepted through midnight May 15, 2014.
