LMU GIS Educational Event

Joseph Kerski at LMU

On Thursday, January 24, 2019, LMU hosted educator and geographer Joseph Kerski for a series of presentations, panels, and conversations about the use of Geographic Information Systems in education and academia. Kerski – who has a Ph.D in geography and has worked in academia, government, the private sector, and for non-profits – conducted the event with the energy of a curious child and the demeanor of a great teacher. His extensive knowledge of GIS, geography, cartography, pedagogy, and data collection and analysis provided a wealth of information and ideas to the professors, researchers, grant writers, and instructional technologists in attendance.
