Description

"The purpose of this project is to design a week-long module for an introductory Management Information Systems class that teaches students about Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The module includes objectives for the students to learn, lesson plans with corresponding powerpoint slides, an in-class activity, and a homework assignment.

While researching GIS, I focused the lesson plans on answering what GIS is, why, how, and who uses GIS. GIS helps businesses to make better decisions using geography. The information from the lesson plans help students complete the in-class activity and homework assignment. Through the in-class activity and homework assignment, students gain experience using a GIS tool, learn how to take data and make inquiries, and learn how to solve business related problems. At the completion of the homework assignment, students write a memo summarizing their solution to the given problem.

My final report details the project objectives, procedure and methods, final lesson plans, in-class activity, homework assignment, and a reflection. If introduced into the College of Business, within an introductory Management Information Systems class, the week-long module would provide students exposure to the growing and rapidly changing market of GIS and how it is utilized in a variety of industries.
