Open Geography Education

Instructors and professors of geography and related disciplines will want to take advantage of the resources made available by Open Geography Education, a website "dedicated to providing free, open curriculum and resources to anybody who is interested in our geographic world." Part of the movement towards Open Education Resources (OER), the site makes peer-reviewed, Creative Commons-licensed geography educational materials available for open access. Visitors can click on "eTextbooks" for links to OER geography and geology textbooks, geography lab manuals, and geospatial technology instructional materials. The books are designed to be readable on smartphones and tablets and for use in face-to-face, hybrid, or entirely online courses. There is also an "Online Resources" page with helpful links to professional organizations, government agencies, private sector institutions, and research centers and projects touching on physical, environmental, and human geography, geographic information systems, remote sensing, and spatial data analysis. Open Geography Education was created by R. Adam Dastrup, Geosciences Coordinator at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC), with support from SLCC, GeoTech, Lumen, Esri, and the Utah State Board of Education.
