Directions Magazine has been privileged to work with some of the most influential minds in the geospatial industry. Over the years, we have showcased their innovations with the hope of inspiring our readers to greater heights. Dr. Joseph Kerski joins us for our successful series of interviews, GeoInspirations. He is interviewing some of those men and women who have changed the face of our industry, shining a light on the importance of geography and geospatial technology. We hope that you’re inspired to make a difference with geography in your corner of the world.
This episode of GeoInspirations features Dr. Sarah Bednarz, Professor Emerita, long-time champion of research and practice in geospatial technology in education. Learn about her work, her journey, and her current initiatives. Dr. Kerski shares, "When I started my doctoral work in GIS in education, Dr. Bednarz was one of the first people I connected with as she had already blazed trails I was interested in pursuing. I have had the great pleasure of working with her and I admired her ever since. She has had enormous impact on my career and that of countless educators, students, researchers, geo-GIS-enviro practitioners, and many others. In particular because she has had interest and been effective in both the K-12 and university educational spaces, I believe her story is a fascinating one for those listening to the podcast—and for people to share with others.
