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. 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.
GETSI is funded by the National Science Foundation's Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM program within the Education and Human Resources Directorate (DUE-1245025). The project is collaborative between UNAVCO, Mt San Antonio College, and Indiana University.
The goals of the GETSI project include:
UNAVCO funding for GETSI runs from July 2013 to June 2017.
