I only found out that I was chair of this session when I received the program. We could have used AV, but it worked out for the best.

Third Grade Presentations: “Why Lumberton is Special to Me”

I found this old powerpoint file, as I am continuing to organize files on an old computer. This is my son’s report “Why Lumberton is Special to Me”. He was assigned to make a presentation on how his hometown is special.

I had to help him, but he was actually getting pretty good at using PowerPoint … even back in 3rd grade. When I was in 3rd grade, we cut photos out of old magazines to make a poster board.

Thank you for your help, Mrs. Edwards

The Geography Photo Contest

This slide set is from one of my assignments in my Intro Geography course this summer. I had my students take photos and describe the geography. Please enjoy these student photos and their written comments. (Click any slide to view FULL SIZE.)

Which one — wonWell, they are ALL winners to me!

College Educators: Students love their cellphones. They like to take selfies and share photos and comments on social media. This type of geography assignment should be fun and easy for them to do. Although this assignment is from my Online course, I suggest using the idea of a “photo contest” for a day when you cannot meet with your students due to faculty absence, conference travel, etc. This is another way to get students THINKING and WRITING …

Posters seen at the Undergraduate Research Conference

The Pembroke Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium was held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019. This annual event is a celebration and recognition of undergraduate research, scholarship, creativity and entrepreneurship.  Faculty mentored their students on a wide variety of research projects. This included students involved in course-based undergraduate research experiences.

Here are some of the posters seen at the conference. Click to view full size JPEG files:

Was this undergraduate event a stepping stone to more Geographic research? Will these students develop their ideas further? Who wants to take their posters to the Southeastern Division of the American Association of Geographers? Does anyone want to go to the Applied Geography Conference? How about the North Carolina Geographical Society?

Contact me if interested!

Posters seen at the Graduate Student Symposium and Open House April 1, 2019

No foolin’ !!! Last night was the Graduate School Symposium and Open House. Current graduate students, potential graduate students and their families enjoyed poster presentations, refreshments and opportunities to discuss our numerous graduate programs. There were a record number 69 posters submitted this year. I had four of my graduate students present posters.

 

You can find more information about the Graduate School linked here:

Just click on a poster to start the slideshow and see details.

The awards were announced after the event. Unfortunately none of my students won, but I still think that they are ALL WINNERS!

“Spline Plots for Time Series Visualization of Annual Heating and Cooling Degree-Day Totals in the Climate Divisions of North Carolina.” AGC 2018

This is a poster I presented at the Applied Geography Conference held October 30-November 2, 2018, at my old alma materKent State University.

This was a wonderful trip! I had not been in Kent for almost 20 years. So much has changed … What ever happened to JB’s Down?

The Kent State University Hotel and Conference Center is a wonderful place. The whole downtown Kent area has been transformed in the past few years. Also, I could believe all the new buildings that have been erected on campus.

It was another successful Applied Geography Conference. Much thanks to Dr. Jay Lee, the AGC Director for many years.

This is a group photo of current Kent State University Climatology faculty and graduate students.  Oddly absent in the above photo however … is my dissertation adviser Dr. Thomas Schmidlin. Fortunately, I was able to catch up with him at lunch the next day and at the conference keynote address.

Also notable: While I was in Kent I visited Ray’s Place. My friend Bob  (also an old KSU room mate), was kind enough to buy me a late lunch.  I had the “Mofo Burger“.

Look for me at the next Applied Geography Conference to be held in Charlotte, NC October 2019.

Update: The YouTube video blogger Joe from “Our Earth” provided this introduction to the conference.

Oh man, it rained every day of the conference. I was hoping to get a better look at all the new features of KSU. I still had a great time, but there was never a good day for walking around.

The Sun came out the morning after the conference was over and I was checking out.

“LAND COVER AND LAND USE CHANGES IN THE MYSTERIOUS CAROLINA BAYS” presentation at SEDAAG 2008

This is the slide show presented at the 2008 Southeastern Division of the Association of American Geographers. Although I presented, and claimed co-authorship, the vast majority of this research was completed over a span of 25 years by Dr. Thomas E. Ross, now a Faculty Emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
