About The Geographer's Craft Project

The Geographers Craft is a teaching initiative being pursued in the Department of Geography at The University of Texas at Austin to improve the teaching of geographical techniques at the introductory level. The two-semester course is experimenting with active-learning, problem-solving methods of instruction and hypermedia, Internet-based course materials. The goal is to promote analytical reasoning and critical thinking by having students address research problems with 'appropriate' geographical concepts and techniques, whether drawn from cartography, geographic information systems, remote sensing, spatial statistics, or other information technologies. As possible, all materials for The Geographer's Craft project are being made available on-line through the Internet. This project has been supported by the National Science Foundation under grants USE-9250310 and DUE-9354476.
