About Kelleann

Kelleann Foster is the roundtable panel moderator at the 2019 Geodesign Summit. She is a proven leader in design and is regularly sought as an invited speaker at national and international design, planning, and technology-focused conferences. She is a registered landscape architect (RLA) whose work is rooted in outreach that is interdisciplinary and forward-thinking in many respects. Foster is the coordinator for Online Geodesign Graduate Programs at Penn State and Director of The Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture in the College of Arts & Architecture. She has over 30 years of professional practice experience as a landscape architect and over 25 years teaching at Penn State. A sabbatical, based at Esri, provided evidence to move forward in establishing Penn State's online geodesign graduate programs through engaging students in a collaborative, virtual studio environment. The programs are a Graduate Certificate in Geodesign and a Master in Professional Studies in Geodesign – all offered entirely online. This innovative format is enabling students from across the globe to successfully complete their degrees without relocating. Foster has introduced geodesign to thousands worldwide via her MOOC "Geodesign: Change Your World." Her work, recognized nationally and internationally, advances technologies to communicate alternative scenarios to citizens. She is also author of the Wiley book "Careers in Design: Becoming a Landscape Architect."
