For those of you who were unable to attend the conference, or who couldn’t clone themselves to be at multiple talks at once, many slides are linked in the session descriptions below. Twin Cities local Kitty Hurley also put together this fantastic document summarizing much of what she saw at the meeting, so if slide decks aren’t linked, check out her notes.

Geographic Education in a Modern World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The last ten years have seen a dramatic shift in geographic education, not just with the tools we teach, but also the types of instruction. More and more opportunities for geographic education are available outside the classroom, both from community-focused learning groups and individual tutorials and classes available online. These rapid and significant changes have inspired a wide range of thoughts and best practices from educators of all types: academic, online, and community-based. Come listen to a panel discussion from a few of these educators on how they view their role, how it's changed over time, and how they see it changing moving forward.

Panel Members:
Matt Wilson, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY
Ryan Cooper, Georgetown-Scott County Planning Commission, Georgetown, Kentucky
Lauren Ancona, City of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Mono Simeone, GIS Education Center, City College of San Francisco
Katie Kowalsky, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wisconsin
Ken Kato, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon
Chris Bone, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon
