GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI): GETSI Short Course - CLOSED
Wednesday, March 30, 2016 from 1:00pm - 5:00pm
Presenters include Bruce Douglas (Indiana University), Gareth Funning (University of California Riverside) and Beth Pratt-Sitaula (UNAVCO) - (pratt-sitaula unavco.org)
It can be challenging to find teaching resources that feature geodetic data sets. GEodesy Tools for Societal Issues (GETSI) is a collaborative NSF-funded project that is working to rectify this gap in undergraduate learning materials by developing high-quality, geodetic data-rich modules for both introductory and majors-level courses. A particular emphasis is placed on data and quantitative analysis skills situated in the context of societal importance. Geodetic methods are well-situated to address societally critical questions regarding natural hazards, climate change, and water resources.
In this four-hour workshop, you will use resources from four modules, receive advice from instructors who have developed and used the materials, and brainstorm with colleagues on how best to adapt/adopt materials into your educational setting. The short course will also overview in-process modules and let you know ways that you could get involved in the future.
