New tools for spatial thinking, and for analyzing and visualizing spatial data, are indispensible for 21st century professionals.  On November 10, TLC will host a presentation by Diana Stuart Sinton, Director of Spatial Curriculum and Research at the University of Redlands, on “New Ways to Map a Changing World.”  Diana headed a national initiative to integrate GIS and spatial thinking across the curriculum for 100 liberal arts colleges, and is an outstanding teacher/presenter on both Geographic Information Systems and lower threshold web-mapping tools such as Google Earth. Diana will do a strategy session for faculty interested in incorporating mapping and data visualization into their teaching, a public presentation on the latest trends in mapping, and a hands-on workshop using Google Earth.

    This sounds like a fascinating workshop. I’d really like to attend, but I may be away on a recruiting trip. Would anyone be kind enough to record Diana’s presentation?
