new AP course needs FOSS input

David Percy

Hi all,
Just ran across this and thought it would be good for those of us in education in the US to be aware...
http://news.aag.org/2015/05/aag-seeks-proposal-authors-reviewers-for-new-ap-course-in-gist/

If any of us have some time to make sure that FOSS material is included in the curriculum, that would be ... good.
:-)

AP courses are taken in high school, and if a test is passed at the end they are awarded some college credit.

Cheers,
Percy

Hi David,

Thanks for bringing this important issue. I really hope you and our other US colleagues will be able to contribute for this .

If any of you are interested to contribute please apply for consideration as a proposal author and/or reviewer, please submit a short (250-word maximum) statement of interest and a current resume/CV to Dr. Michael Solem, AAG Director of Educational Research and Programs, at msolem [at] aag [dot] org by June 15, 2015. Proposal authors and reviewers will receive a stipend to support their work.

Applications are sought from AP teachers, faculty from all-types of postsecondary institutions (2-year and 4-year undergraduate, master’s and research-doctoral), instructional design specialists and GIS industry professionals with interests in GIS education. Further details are in the website.

Best wishes,

Suchith
