The 8th European GIS in Education Seminar - EUGISES will come to Leuven - Belgium in 2012.
EUGISES 2012 will run from Sept 06 (Thursday) – Sept 9 (Sunday) 2012.
The specific focus of the 2012 edition of the seminar is the search for boundaries of the GIS educational playing field. Which organisational, technical, geographical and content-wise elements can be incorporated in a meaningful way in GIS-education? Which should be avoided?
The call for technical papers and posters concerns the following questions and topics are at stake:
How can the internet help?
How important are the upcoming spatial data infrastructures?
How important is the GIS-software?
How important is the instructor?
How important are the characteristics of the target student group?
Educational trajectories for GIS
Is there scope and/or need for standardisation of GIS-curricula and teaching materials?
How can quality of GIS-education be measured and assured?
In addition to these EUGISES-issues contributions are invited related to relatively unexplored topics such as:
What do we learn from educational advances in other disciplines?
Examples and evaluation of north-north, north-south and south-south GIS-educational cooperation
Is geo-ICT a component of GIS-education or is it a separate topic?
