The Department of Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning at Tufts University is searching for a part‐time lecturer to teach undergraduate-level Introduction to GIS – one course in Spring 2022. A syllabus for how the course has been taught recently is available upon request.
This course will be taught on Mondays and Wednesdays 1:30-2:45pm, although it may be possible to negotiate a different time/day. Instructors must also be willing to offer the course online if needed.
Open only to undergraduates, Intro to GIS introduces students to the foundation of Geographic Information Systems theory, technology, and applications.
