1 The evolution of Geomatics at Delft University of Technology 8 th European GIS Education Seminar September 7, 2012 Frans I. Rip, Edward Verbree (DUT)

2 Overview 1.What: EduMapping the development of a GI MSc programme 2.How: Determining version differences and cognitive levels 3.Why: Innovation, beneficial for your programme the GI domain 2

3 Geomatics Programme description dingen/geomatics/programme/doc/geomatics_for_the_built_environment_curriculum.pdf 3

4 Improvement Long descriptions & suggestive pictures that tell a thousand words. EduMapping produces compact characterization, with the GI Body of Knowledge as a reference Compact characterizations are easier comparable, to previous versions and to other programmes How to characterize the evolution of Geomatics at Delft University of Technology? We looked at: Teaching content Cognitive level (Learning Outcomes) 4

5 Teaching content Differences in Numbers 5

6 Spider Diagram overview of multidimensional differences 6

7 Spatialization by grouping into 2 dimensions EduMapping Label for DUT Geomatics -X +Y polygon +X -Y 1 centroid or point of gravity 7

8 Spatialized: Version centroids show moves 8

9 The change in a map OLD PROPOSED - NEW 9

10 That was about teaching content in terms of the GI Body of Knowledge Next, a look at the intended Cognitive level 10

11 Learning Outcomes (Kennedy 2007) on successful completion of this module, students should be able to: L.O. s per module, max. 9! Bloom s 6 levels of Knowing, with verbs L.O. example Format: Action verb - object - context Calculate gradient from maps in m, km, % and ratio 11

12 Learning Outcomes development in Delft s Geomatics programme L.O. s are preferred in EHEA to inform about acquired capabilities. How did the cognitive level of teaching evolve in the versions of Geomatics? Core programme MSc Geomatics ECTS GM1050. GIS Principles and Applications 4.2 GM1080. Geo Database Management Systems 1.5 GM1090. Introduction Geomatics 2.0 GM1210. Location Based Services 3.8 GM1240. Imaging Remote Sensing 2.7 CIE4521. Multivariate Data Analysis 2.3 CIE4522. Satellite Navigation 2.5 GE4662. Org. and Legal Aspects of Geo-Inf. 6.0 Overall average performance level (scale 1-6): 3.1 Remarks: For 9 modules there were 15 content descriptions, interpreted as 25 LO s. The LO-format was not used in 5 descriptions. Core programme MSc Geomatics ECTS GM.1 Sensing Technologies for the Built Env. 1.0 GM.2 GIS and Cartography 4.8 GM.3 Positioning and Location Awareness 4.2 GM.4 3D Modelling of the Built Environment 5.6 GM.5 Spatial Decision Support for Planning and Crisis Management 4.4 GM.6 Geo Database Management Systems 4.3 GM.7 Geo Web, Sensor Networks and 3D-Geo Visualisation Technology 3.8 GM.8 Geo Datasets and Quality 3.8 GM.9 Geo-information Org. and Legislation 5.2 Overall average performance level (scale 1-6): 4.1 Remarks: Nr. of active verbs: 79 in 40 LO s. Maximum was 4 verbs in one LO. Most verbs were in vocabulary offered by Kennedy (2007). The change from value 3.1 to value 4.1 is not entirely credible, due to the quality of the 2010 Learning Outcomes. 12

13 Learning Outcomes Non-compliant L.O. example The preferred L.O.-format as a reference: On successful completion of this module, students should be able to: Calculate gradient from maps in m, km, % and ratio. From the 2010 version of Geomatics: GM1240 Imaging Remote Sensing (4 ECTS) The objective is to understand image analysis theory, algorithms and resulting software programs, as well as their use. During exercises attention is paid to 'established software, either commercial (ENVI) or open source (ILWIS), experimental software (svmlib, KLT, SIFT) and software developed by the course participants (supervised classification). 13

14 Relevance? Shown differences between versions of Geomatics MSc programme, using EduMapping and Learning Outcome levels That is innovation Why? 14

15 Innovation! OECD 2005: Oslo Manual 3 rd ed., GUIDELINES FOR COLLECTING AND INTERPRETING INNOVATION DATA EduMapping / L.O. level Their use provides more detailed characteristics of the service provided (GI-teaching) using GI-BoK as a reference. Useful for Study Guides & Quality Assurance (Accreditation) types of innovations product innovation - process innovation Their use enables different and improved product positioning by GI teaching organisations. Comparability can support your claim about being special! marketing innovation Domain level: use of GI-BoK and EduMapping could enable more collaboration between the professional organisations in the GI domain. Supports the identification of overlapping teaching programmes and the unique ones in all parts of the GI-domain. organisational innovation 15

16 Is it really innovation? Innovation also is an implementation process. More than just an invention. In Europe, adoption of GI-BoK (+ EduMapping) is still in the first phase. Using GI-BoK for accreditation (QA) might stimulate further adoption. Delft University is among the first to use GI-BoK in their QA self assessment report (about Geomatics 2012) 16

17 Conclusion 1. Shown the evolution of a GI MSc programme using EduMapping 2. Indicated that applying GI- BoK + EduMapping might become a beneficial innovation Question: What keeps you from applying EduMapping? 17

18 LeGIO Thank you for your attention. Questions?

19 OECD Oslo Manual p.47: Four types of innovations are distinguished: product innovations, process innovations, marketing innovations and organisational innovations. product innovation is the introduction of a good or service that is new or significantly improved with respect to its characteristics or intended uses. This includes significant improvements in technical specifications, components and materials, incorporated software, user friendliness or other functional characteristics. process innovation is the implementation of a new or significantly improved production or delivery method. This includes significant changes in techniques, equipment and/or software. marketing innovation is the implementation of a new marketing method involving significant changes in product design or packaging, product placement, product promotion or pricing. organisational innovation is the implementation of a new organisational method in the firm s business practices, workplace organisation or external relations. 19
