Teaching with Technology Forum – Save the Date

Vassar’s Academic Computing Services group will host the fifth annual Teaching With Technology Forum

Wednesday, April 25
4:00 – 6:45pm
in the Aula at Ely Hall
Vassar College

There will be thirteen faculty presenters on hand to demonstrate their classroom exercises and projects using computers and poster-style presentations. Many terrific geospatial projects will be presented. It is a fun, informal and interesting event that is not to be missed.

Here’s a list of the geospatial projects (as this is a GIS blog):

Lucy Johnson (Anthropology), “Field Archaeology: Tablet PCs and Digital Photography Enhance Research and Reporting”

Brian Godfrey (Geography), “Making Maps with Census Data”

David Jemiolo (Biology) and David Kennett (Economics), “Sugar, Rum and Squash: Going to Barbados with Google Earth”

Bob Fritz and Keri Van Camp (Biology), “Using Tablet PCs in a Field Ecology Course to Examine the Distribution of Garlic Mustard”

Jeff Walker (Geology), “Food and Farming - GIS in Agriculture”

Marshall Pregnall (Biology), “Finding the Bathymetry of Sunset Lake and the Change Over Time Using 3D Analyst”

This event is free and open, so feel welcome to come and see what your faculty colleagues are up to at Vassar. Here’s what past Forums looked like (2006, 2005, and 2004). If you have any questions, please contact me.

"How do you I there?" Then ask for directions to the Aula at the Main Gate.
