Building a Geospatially Competent Workforce with FOSS4G

A session at FOSS4G North America 2013

Wednesday 22nd May, 2013

11:30am to 12:00pm (CST)

The publication of the Department of Labor’s Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) in June 2010 heralded the arrival of a federally recognized geospatial technology ‘industry’. The GTCM marked a watershed when our industry ‘came of age’. Now we must build technology-enabled curriculum to match the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) to meet the needs of this GTCM-defined workforce. This presentation will demonstrate one such effort to build a complete geospatial technology curriculum, directly aligned with the GTCM, that utilized the latest in FOSS4G application software, opensource learning management software (LMS), and learning theory research to create a FOSS4G Academy
