The landscape of emerging and maturing change in GIScience education
Since its explosion into the academy in the 1980s, GIScience education continues to evolve. Many trends in higher education are changing the face of GIScience education, including the widespread acceptance of online (distance) education and of professional masters programs. Changes in technology are also pushing evolution in our field, with perhaps the most important being the blend of cyberinfrastructure, eScience and GIS, which in the US is called CyberGIS. This talk will provide a framework for discussion of the significance of these themes and how GIScience education must address them.
