Teaching


Erklaerung_1

The Chair of Geographic Information Science (GIScience) plays a key role in training and educating undergraduate and graduate students at the Department of Geography in the use and study of GIScience tools, which are equally relevant for academic and for professional careers. We are actively involved in the Geography (Bachelor/Master's) and GIScience (Master's) programs as well as the supervision of doctoral students and postdoctoral researchers. In addition, future geography high-school teachers gain basic knowledge of GIScience that prepares them to integrate modern technologies into their high school teaching. Furthermore students of applied computer science (Bachelor) and application subject geography aquire extensive GIScience skills in our group.

Our goal is to provide to our students solid training in the GIScience foundations and technologies as well as quantitative methods of geographic information analysis. This training is combined with diverse applied study projects that expose our students to the professional as well as the research context. Advanced courses require an increasing amount of self-directed work as well as team work. Our international network and projects furthermore create opportunities for developing competencies that are relevant for an international work environment.
