This model has been contextually constructed on four main foundations as emerged from Nazari's exploratory case study of IL. These are: a and b) conceptions of geospatial information and GIS as emerged from the perceptions and experiences of GIS students and educators as well as from the context of the case i.e. from GIS module outlines and an analysis of other relevant documents such as the GIS curricula as well as the researcher's observations of the ODL environment of the case; c) nature and characteristics of GIS education; d) nature and process of problem solving geospatially.
This presentation introduces the MG/SIL as emerged "only" from the conceptions of geospatial information. So it does NOT present the final picture of the model.
This presentation aims to highlight the implications of the model for GI/S education and research in the particular context of the City University in London (UCL).
Hope you find it useful :)
