  • CFP: The Innovation Library: Sharing Web-based Mapping Activities (Interactive Short Paper Session)

    We would like to invite graduate students to participate in a short interactive paper session at AAG.  We are looking for innovative ideas in teaching geographical concepts and graduate students are often the most innovative.  

    The Innovation Library: Sharing Web-based Mapping Activities (Interactive Short Paper Session)
    Co-Organizers: Amy Potter, Armstrong State University and Jacqueline Housel, Sinclair College

    Regardless of instructional format (e.g. hybrid, on-line, competency based), instructors rely on mapping to introduce and reinforce geospatial concepts.  In this interactive short paper session, presenters will share how they use dynamic, web-based maps (e.g. on-line ArcGIS, OpenStreetMap, Google Earth) to teach geographic concepts.   Presenters will (1) introduce the range of web-based mapping resources currently available; (2) discuss specific ways that they have incorporated web-based maps into activities; and (3) share materials that can be used to design and develop learning activities, assignments, and labs.
