Despite its growing importance in societally critical fields such as hazard mitigation and climate change, geodetic techniques and data are seldom found in undergraduate courses – even for majors. This short course gives instructors hands-on experience with curricular modules that feature LiDAR, InSAR, GPS, and structure from motion (SfM) photogrammetry data and methods for both classroom and field courses. It also provides structured time for discussion and planning potential implementation into courses. Modules are firmly grounded in societal important reasons for learning geoscience and include relevant quantitative skill development. Topics are particularly appropriate for structural geology, geophysics, tectonics, field methods, and geomorphology courses. All module also include quantitative skill development.
Participants who complete the entire short course will receive stipend of $300. An additional $100 is potentially available for instructors who use the materials in subsequent courses and give feedback. Open to instructors and graduate students. Priority given to people who are actively involved in teaching.
