Online workshop on October 28, 2021
Cartography and geospatial information education has always gradually been changing its contents, as well as corresponding effective approaches to deliver resilient education. COVID-19 has caused an unprecedented impact on every aspect of society since December of 2019. According to UNESCO monitoring, more than one billion students have experienced school closure. Cartography and geospatial information education is no exception. With the help of rapidly improving online meeting tools, some institutions have set teaching and learning onto digital platforms, though some may choose other ways to continue sharing knowledge. Shifting from typical classroom lecturing and face-to-face meeting to online and hybrid learning poses challenges for us, but it also offers opportunities.
The ICA Commission on Education and Training is organizing an online workshop “Challenges and Opportunities of Cartography and GIS Education: in the Classroom and in the Cloud” on October 28, 2021. The workshop will be scheduled 12.30–16.30pm GMT.
A preliminary workshop program as well as details on how to join our workshop is available on our ICA-CET website: education.icaci.org/pre-icc2021-cet-workshop/
The workshop is free of charge and open to all interested with cartography and geospatial information education. We hope the workshop can be a platform for educators and researchers to exchange and share best practices and experiences.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you during our online workshop.
