Remote Sensing Training: Methods & Best Practices
Thursdays, October 13-27, 2016 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. and 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. EDT (UTC-4)
The goal of the NASA Applied Remote Sensing Training (ARSET) is to increase the utility of NASA earth science and model data for policy makers, regulatory agencies, and other applied science professionals in the areas of Health and Air Quality, Water Resources, Eco Forecasting, and Disaster Management. The two primary activities of this project are webinars and in-person courses.
Many institutions have knowledge of remote sensing, but don’t know how to build an online remote sensing webinar or how to organize a face-to-face training. The skills taught in this webinar will enable participants to provide remote sensing training to others within their organization or community of practice.
This three-session online training series will engage the global community to communicate the training best practices NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) has found most effective. Throughout the webinar series, we will provide best practices on how to:
- Build a remote sensing training program
- Perform effective outreach for training
- Put together and deliver quality presentations
- Communicate effectively with both scientific and nonscientific audiences
- Understand the key steps needed to develop an online or onsite training
- Learn how to conduct outreach and promote training
- Learn how to develop and deliver effective presentations on remote sensing topics and applications
Session One Overview:
October 13, 2016
