Geospatial Technologies as a Vehicle for Enhancing Graduate Education and Promoting the Value of Geography
Oberle, Alex P.; Joseph, Sue A.; May, David W.
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v34 n4 p475-492 Nov 2010
Geospatial technologies (GSTs), such as geographic information systems, global positioning systems and remote sensing, present an avenue for expanding the already strong interdisciplinary nature of geography. This paper discusses how GSTs served as a common thread for a crosscutting faculty institute that was established to enhance graduate student teaching and learning at a comprehensive university. Results of this institute demonstrate that this effort advanced graduate education and promoted the value of geographic scholarship across the university. (Contains 3 tables and 3 notes.)
