Geospatial Teaching Support Meetings

The diversity of disciplines, teaching styles, and modalities that may benefit from or wish to incorporate a Geospatial component precludes a prescriptive approach to supporting the teaching activities undertaken within the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences. This page provides an outline of the meeting schedule for the next year, with information on the agenda intentions for each meeting at the bottom of the page.

The SAL Teaching Support page has information on what types of support you can get for your teaching if you are a SEALS academic.
