From Ann Johnson via GeoTech Center blog:
iGETT-Remote Sensing is an 18-month professional development program for faculty who teach Geographic Information Systems (GIS) at two-year colleges, and at high schools and four-year institutions that are interested in collaborating with two-year programs.
Hands-on instruction at two summer institutes and in monthly webinars will enable participants to:
- Identify, download, and analyze appropriate federal land remote sensing data, and
- Integrate remote sensing data with GIS to solve practical problems.
Most expenses will be covered, and all participants will receive personal stipends and software for their labs. For more detailed information and an application to join the project in February 2014, see http://igett.delmar.edu and click on APPLICATION FORM [the link is on the left side menu and is titled "Application"].
Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training-Remote Sensing was funded in 2012 with a grant (DUE 1205069) from the National Science Foundation (DUE# 1205069) to the National Council for Geographic Education, in collaboration with the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the U.S. Geological Survey Landsat Project, and the GeoTech Center. It builds on the success of the first iGETT project, conducted 2007–2012.
Applications are due December 20, 2013.
