Interested in integrating remote sensing into your GIS instruction? Don’t miss this professional development opportunity!
The National Council for Geographic Education is partnering with the US Geological Survey EROS Center, the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and West Valley College (in Saratoga CA) to offer professional development for GIS instructors at two-year colleges and at high schools and universities interested in collaborating with geospatial programs at two-year colleges.
Funded by the National Science Foundation, the program builds on the very successful iGETT project (Integrated Geospatial Education and Technical Training). The new program, iGETT–Remote Sensing, focuses on enabling its participants to teach workforce skills that integrate remote sensing data with GIS.
iGETT – Remote Sensing is currently recruiting the first of two cohorts. Cohort 1 will join the project in February 2012; Cohort 2 in February 2013. Each will participate in monthly webinars and two summer institutes, held at the USGS EROS Center and/or the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, over an 18-month period. More information about the project and Cohort 1 applications (due December 20, 2012) are available at http://igett.delmar.edu.
