The Spatial Perspectives on Analysis for Curriculum Enhancement (SPACE) program is offering a workshop on Spatial Analysis for the Curriculum: Enhancing Undergraduate Learning July 31-August 5, 2006. This workshop focuses on spatial methods and perspectives suited for applications in the undergraduate social science curriculum, such as exploratory spatial data analysis and cartographic visualization. Participants will illustrate these methods and design instructional modules and exercises for use in teaching undergraduates. The workshop will also explore strategies for curriculum development and assessment of student learning.
The program is co-sponsored by the Center for Spatially Integrated Social Science (CSISS), the Department of Geography, and the Institute for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Research (ISBER). Instructors include Stuart Sweeney (coordinator), Fiona Goodchild, Michael Goodchild, Don Janelle, and Waldo Tobler. SPACE is funded under the National Science Foundation’s program for Course, Curriculum & Laboratory Improvement – National Dissemination. For more information, go to: http://www.csiss.org/SPACE
