Keeping Up with Accelerating Change

ArcGIS is evolving from a desktop application to a web-centric platform. Professional practices within the agencies and firms that employ GIS graduates are changing accordingly.

Educators—like other GIS professionals—struggle to keep up.

This plenary session will showcase five educators, administrators, and a recent graduate who will share their experiences and strategies for coping with accelerating change. Esri education team members will add brief updates on our programs for schools, higher education, and lifelong learning.
