Global Conversations around GIS and Education

Tomorrow we’ll host the 2nd in the Americas’ series of panel discussions around what it means to be a resilient educator of GIS and GIScience, and what it means to implement technologies in support of that outcome. The Europe/Africa one has already taken place, the Asia-Pacific one yet to come. Info about these can be found here:, and I encourage people to join, listen, share.

COVID has been a disruptive factor, obviously, but these conversations have uprooted much more that has been problematic for years. Too much expected of too few, too little capacity to connect dots. Why every summer do we keep wondering what textbook to adopt when only a fraction of students buy or read the book? Shouldn’t we be doing something a little differently? A lot differently?
