Over the last two decades, technical advances in geodesy have revolutionized our understanding of Earth processes and produced discoveries of major societal impact related to climate change, water resource management, and mitigation of natural hazards. Teaching resources have simply not kept pace with advances in geodesy, both for introductory and majors-level undergraduate courses in both the classroom and field. GETSI is one component of redressing this gap and is developing curricular resources with which to educate future citizens and future geoscience professionals on the power and breadth of geodetic methods to address critical topics. In addition, GETSI is providing a range of professional development opportunities for instructors to facilitate implementation of the teaching modules.
GETSI had been funded by the National Science Foundation's Education and Human Resources Directorate through a series of collaborative grants:
The goals of the GETSI project include:
