We have a few spots left in this short course that is being offered the day before AGU so we extended the deadline to Nov 10. Apply now!

Short course at AGU
Using GPS data in undergraduate courses: from tectonic motions to water resources and climate change issues

Date: Sunday December 10, 2017 (day before annual AGU meeting starts)
Location: American Geophysical Union Annual Meeting, New Orleans, LA
Times: Course will be 8 am-5 pm on Sunday December 10 (lunch included)

Want to incorporate the latest uses of GPS data in your instruction? This short course will give you the resources and knowledge to hit the ground running this spring.

Using GPS data in undergraduate courses can be challenging, as few prepared resources are available and many instructors are unfamiliar with the wider range of applications. This short course gives instructors hands-on experience with curricular modules that feature GPS/GNSS data and other geodetic time series applied to water resources and climate change topics, as well as the more known use of measuring tectonic motions.

Participants who complete the entire short course will receive stipend of $300 to defray travel costs. An additional $100 is potentially available for instructors who use the materials in subsequent courses and give feedback.

SPACE LIMITED. Apply now at https://register.unavco.org/public/meetings/2017/agu-education/registerlookup.aspx
Final deadline November 10, 2017 with rolling admissions.

Included modules:
Measuring Water Resources with GPS, Gravity, and Traditional Methods - https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/teaching_materials/water_resources/index.html <https://serc.carleton.edu/getsi/teaching_materials/water_resources/index.html>
