This workshop presents a rare opportunity for faculty and staff to explore the potential of spatial thinking to improve pedagogy. The past few years have seen an explosion in free, easy to use, web applications that approach the power and flexibility of traditional Geographic Information Systems. As a result, scholars from across the academic spectrum have employed these tools to enable them and their students to pursue research questions from a spatial analysis perspective.
