Challenges and Opportunities of Instructing a University Level FOSS4G Course

This presentation will review the experiences over the past six years of instructing a FOSS4G course at the university level.  What has worked and what needs to be improved will be discussed.  These experiences are based on an introductory FOSS4G course that focuses on how students can incorporate Open Source technologies into their program majors and careers.  While the specific content for each semester changes there are three core areas of FOSS4G technology that the students use: desktop GIS, database management systems, and Cloud-based GIS.  The students gain experience with these technologies through readings and hands-on exercises.  This gives them the experience to use FOSS4G in a project of their choice that is related to their major course of study. 

Friday 2 October, 12:00 PM Denver Time (MDT) (UTC -6)
