GIS instruction now available through Hutchinson Community College!

I’m pleased to announce that after 2 years of planning & work that I just got approval to teach Introductory GIS through Hutchinson Community College for the spring 2007 semester! The class is being offered by the Fire Science department, which had vision enough to recognize the need for proper GIS training for their students, and gumption enough to do something about it.

Although the class was created by Fire Science, it is by no means a class for only firefighters. The goal of the class is to provide a basic understanding of GIS and the ability to use off the shelf GIS software (ESRI’s ArcView) in the creation of a final project. The ultimate goal is to use this class as a foundation for a GIS syllabus with complete transferability to a 4-year college that offers GIS degrees.

Interested in putting another feather in your thinking cap? Classes will be offered on Wednesday nights in Cameron Hall at the HCC Fire Science Campus beginning in January 2007. There are a total of 20 seats available, & the class is so brand-spankin’ new, that it hasn’t even been listed in the college’s course offerings. So, if you’re really interested, then drop this guy a line ASAP. Likewise, if you have questions about the class & it’s content then drop me a line.

See you in class!

    […] Wow, that title’s a mouthful… I can’t claim credit for it though. The folks who are spearheading this effort at geotechcenter.org have identified a need for a consolidation of resources to facilitate the teaching of geospatial technology in higher education; specifically, in community colleges (anyone see a tie-in yet?).
