GOLI Webinar on Story Maps
Thursday, March 14, 2019 1:00 PM EST | 1 hour
Series: Geoscience Online Learning Initiative
CEUs: 0.10

Communicating results of geoscience investigations to a diverse set of audiences will grow in importance in our 21st century world. Story maps are web mapping applications that provide geoscientists with the ability to combine 2D and 3D maps, audio, video, photographs, and narrative that can be shared with research colleagues, or the general public, and embedded in web pages and online presentation tools. This webinar will quickly give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make your own maps for telling your own story.

This webinar is great for any geoscientist who needs to communicate about their own research results, or hypothesis, or issue to their own organization, to a specific group, or to the general public; or is examining the "where" question and therefore has a need to show at least some of their research and data on maps.

GOLI Webinar on Professional Licensure
Wednesday, February 13, 2019 1:00 PM EST | 1 hour 30 minutes
Series: Geoscience Online Learning Initiative
CEUs: 0.15
 
The purpose of professional licensing is to ensure a minimum level of competency for practitioners in a given field in order to protect the public.  Having a license to practice geology is a requirement in the majority of United States, Canada and several other countries.  In contrast to other professions, a disconnect has developed between applied geologists and academia.  Professional licensing requirements are a fact of life for applied geologists.  Unfortunately, many faculty members have limited understanding of the licensing requirements that their students must deal with once they graduate.  
 
This webinar will: 
  • Provide an overview of geology licensure qualification requirements in the United States
  • Discuss the national licensing examinations for geologists prepared by the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG®)
  • Learn how data from the ASBOG® Fundamentals of Geology (FG) examination can be used as a curriculum assessment and curriculum modification tool
