QGreenland Educator Workshop 2023
From Monday 05 June 2023
To Thursday 08 June 2023
Location Greenland

Authentic learning activities for undergraduate students can be difficult to find and time-consuming to generate. QGreenland invites educators to a dedicated workshop to co-develop learning resources using QGreenland data. The workshop will bring together instructors across disciplines to create learning resources which use Greenland-focused data that can then serve the larger community. The workshop will include training on how to use research-based pedagogical approaches. This workshop is best suited for formal undergraduate or graduate educators. Familiarity with QGIS or willingness to complete the beginner tutorial series is preferred.

Benefits of participation

  • $250 stipend for successful completion of workshop
  • Authorship of curriculum resources available to the educational community
  • Access to the collection of GIS learning activities developed by workshop participants
  • Build a network of educators

Is this workshop for me?

Do you want to engage your students with real-world data and build genuine skills they can use in their careers? Do you want to learn and discuss pedagogy for teaching GIS with QGIS?

If you answer to these questions is yes, than this workshop is for YOU!
