Teaching Experiences, Pedagogies, Practices and Praxes in Subject of Applied Geo-information System Technology

Abstract

This paper is presented as an important point for teaching experiences from 2012 to 2019 based on pedagogies and praxes in subject of applied geo-information system technology (AGST) for graduate students, is under Master of Science Program in Applied Information and Communication Technology, Faculty of Sciences and Liberal Arts, Rajamangala University of Technology ISAN, Thailand. These main purposes are to share teaching experiences, pedagogy and praxis with tactics for instructors or lecturers and to share teaching outputs-based graduate students’ assessment from thesis or independent study (IS). The sequential topics for teaching has started with a basic and theoretical approaches of geo-information (such as Geographical Information System, GIS; Remote Sensing, RS; Global Position System, GPS or called, ‘3S’) including pre-and post-test. In pedagogy and praxis, lecturer has given assignment for graduate students who have to find a variety of their interested three or five case studies using geospatial technology (GT) and present to lecturer before they will implement for small-geographic inquiry project. This teaching has been found that graduate students during 2012-2019 are able to use these pedagogies and praxes for operating their theses and ISs about 80% while 20%, who do not lead to do thesis or IS but need just knowledge. Furthermore, over eight periods above, lecturers have faced to advances of geospatial technology including cloud-based GT applications and increasingly sophisticated software, etc. Consequently, lecturers and graduate students have to develop or improve and learn using such advanced GT for research, thesis or IS too.
