Authors: Michael Horswell, Harry West

Fee paying students with high expectations demand more than knowledge and technical content. This presentation will explore how we use GIS in our geography curricula to facilitate personal development and transformation that help our graduates stand out from the crowd when they enter the highly competitive jobs market.
