September conversations: Role of Libraries in Geography and GIS Education Online

This is our second series of weekly conversations, every Thursday in September from 3:00-4:00 pm (EST). This time we are using the month of September to dig deeper into the conversations about the Role of Libraries in Geography and GIS Education. We started these conversations as part of a grant from the National Center for Research in Geography Education to explore how libraries support informal (and formal) learning about geography and GIS. As part of this work, we had several online events this Spring. For more information about the project visit our website www.library.cmu.edu/gis/rolgge.

Register once, but attend them all. We are asking that you register here for the event, but once you get the connection details they will be the same for all four meetings. Below are the topics we will discuss each week. We hope to see you soon!

September 3, 3:00-4:00 pm (EST) How do we move GIS instruction online? How can we ensure we are meeting pedagogical goals through virtual and remote environments? 

September 10, 3:00-4:00 pm (EST) How do we advocate for open-source / open-access pedagogy (e.g. tutorials, sample datasets) and research (e.g. data sources, data management)? 

September  17, 3:00-4:00 pm (EST) How do we manage collections development (especially in these economically uncertain times)?

September  24, 3:00-4:00 pm (EST)  How can we build and maintain this community? What are the next steps towards supporting our communities interests and needs?
