This project sought to facilitate the process of students enhancing their skills in the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and using these to develop practices of independent learning. The focus was on producing resources for staff to help embed GIS within the curriculum within GEES. Primary among these resources was a generic skills training course made available via WebCT. This self-guided course operates at a number of levels, from complete novice to more advanced user seeking to augment their existing skill set. Undergraduates, doctoral researchers and staff alike are able to use these materials and apply these techniques to their own research/teaching interests. This material is not only used within GEES, offers the potential to make these techniques accessible across the College of Life and Environmental Sciences, as well as the wider university.
