Service Learning in GIS Courses
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Georgiana Bostean
I was hesitant to implement a service learning project in an undergraduate introductory GIS course, but I tried it anyway...with great results! In this presentation, I'll address the benefits and challenges of using service learning in GIS courses. I will share how I recruited organizations, oversaw, and evaluated student projects. Lastly, I'll provide some suggestions for those who are considering a service learning project to assess whether it would work in their own context.
