A brand new series of geographic science and geospatial technology (remote sensing, GIS, and GPS) curriculum is now freely available for educators. Based on the National Council for Geographic Education's (NCGE) Geography for Life standards and the Department of Labor's (DOL) Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM), these new courses incorporate the latest in geographic science, geospatial technology, and cognitive learning theory. The material includes the eTextbooks and activities using ESRI's ArcGIS 10.3 desktop software necessary to meet the knowledge, skill sets, and competencies needed in the geospatial technology industry, as outlined by the GTCM. The courses are licensed for retaining, reusing, revising, remixing, and redistributing under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License.

This presentation will focus on the curriculum design of the courses and the various modalities it could be utilized including online, hybrid, and flipped classroom pedagogy. This work was funded jointly by Lumen Learning's Kaleidoscope Project, NSF (National GeoTech Center), and the DOL (NISGTC).
