Spatial Literacy for Educators program at the University of Redlands

It’s almost time to launch our first online cohort of students in our School of Education’s program in Spatial Literacy for Educators.   This term’s first class, EDUC 617 – GIS & Mapping as Instructional Tools – will be taught by Kristi Alvarez.  It’s the most geography and GIS focused of the four courses.  My contribution to the program, EDUC 616 – Foundations of Spatial Thinking – will be offered in Winter Term this year (starting in January 2012).   Though I am the guest speaker for the first week of Kristi’s class!  The other two courses involve curriculum development and assessment.

In July I was interviewed by Jesse Rouse of Very Spatial about the program, and you can listen here to the podcast.

  1. This online certificate sounds really cool! I’m going to let people at the Utah State Office of Education know about it.
