The American Association of Geographers is piloting 2 workshops next week that may be of particular interest to the experiences of graduate students during COVID-19. The pilot is the first phase of a new AAG program meant to support graduate students in adapting their research to this new virtual reality. After this pilot, they will develop and share a call for more workshop proposals. Each workshop is intended to showcase a research method in geography that is feasible during the pandemic or showcase a method’s new strategies to adapt to the pandemic.
- Pilot Workshop (1) by Dr. Iain Hay: The strength to cope with Qualitative Research Methods in a Pandemic! (September 11th – September 14th)
- Pilot Workshop (2) by Dr. Joslyn Zale: Is this pandemic the time I will learn GIS basics? (September 13th – September 16th)
Students will be encouraged to attend as many workshops as they can to gain a better understanding of the versatility of geography, its possibilities, and so they can adapt their method or process in case it was impacted by the pandemic. These workshops will also serve as a venue for students of any geographic speciality to connect with one another.
