This webinar addresses how geospatial professionals can advance through Penn State course offerings that combine science with design-thinking.
Today’s challenges in community design and natural resource conservation are far too complex for any one profession to adequately address. Problems and issues occur at multiple scales and require collaboration among diverse teams of experts and local citizens. This webinar describes the relevance of geodesign, the how and why of its application, and specifically focuses on Penn State’s program.
Just the facts
Geodesign helps test the cumulative impacts of design options from the smallest locales to entire cities or regions, enabling relevant design solutions to be derived through this collaborative process. Many geospatial professionals are experienced in the extraction and creation of data, but find it harder to determine specific data usage in the messy iterative design process.
Penn State brings geodesign alive through courses and programs which emphasize:
Peer and faculty feedback help students develop facility with the geodesign process and gain confidence to become leaders in geodesign projects.
