GIS in Geosciences Training : an Experience in Pedagogical Engineering

Abstract : With the development of geographic information technologies (geomatics), applied geosciences professions require more and more computing capabilities. Important skills to acquire include those related to the acquisition of reference data, the spatial nature of environmental data and spatial analysis, the methodologies, and the tools of geographic information systems (GIS). In France, a gap currently exists between the level of geosciences training offered at the university level and the skills needed by professionals. To address this issue, we present herein a course in which students solve an environmental problem using the software platform ArcGIS as a decision tool. The first phase in developing this course consisted of an overview of the evolution of professional practices in applied geosciences and an analysis of training opportunities currently available in France with regards to GIS. This phase is followed by the design and implementation of an educational framework. A pilot study was also performed with students, and the preliminary results are presented herein.
