to develop a distributed information infrastructure that
supports the teaching and learning of Geography;
to establish innovative approaches to teaching and learning,
based on this infrastructure.
Specifically, we want to:
show how undergraduate and postgraduate Geography programs
in the consortium universities can be enriched and developed through cross-national
collaboration and on-line delivery;
demonstrate how major geospatial resources concerning the
environment and human population can be used in study programs;
show how important skills in the analysis of spatial information
through the use of Geographical Information Science and Earth Observation
software and functions can be taught on-line in undergraduate programs;
develop on-line learning and teaching resources to use on
campus so geography courses can be delivered to students in other disciplines,
overcoming scheduling problems.
