UNAVCO seeks community input to inform the role of UNAVCO in support of community field education efforts in incorporating geodetic tools into classroom and field instruction. As the technologies for scientific examination of Earth have grown, there is more interest in introducing these technologies into field education curriculum. There is growing need for a comprehensive approach to supporting university faculty with incorporation of UNAVCO supported technologies in their courses and field camps. Technologies include: static and real time kinematic (RTK) GNSS, Terrestrial, Airborne, and Mobile Laser Scanning (TLS, ALS, and MLS), radar, and photogrammetry. 

The goal of this workshop is to bring together educators who are interested in, or are already actively using, geodetic technologies in a field education context. Faculty currently utilizing geodetic technologies will share their curriculum and lessons learned. We’ll discuss challenges, best practices, and how to optimize the student experience. Finally, we’ll discuss next steps and recommendations to UNAVCO for how to best support field education with technical resources and curriculum needs going forward. The final outcome of the workshop will be the development of a community-driven white paper to guide UNAVCO on how to best support university field education efforts. 

Workshop participation is via application. All travel and lodging are provided for participants. 

Date: November 17 and 18 at UNAVCO in Boulder, Colorado. 

More details and application are available at: http://www.unavco.org/education/advancing-geodetic-skills/short-courses/2014/field-education/field-education.html

Selected participations will be notified no later than October 27. Persons interested but unable to attend the workshop can provide input via a community survey in November or at AGU.
