Hi – I’m Beth King.
I’m a senior lecturer in the Department of Geography at Penn State and I’m the Assistant Program Manager for Online Geospatial Education in the Dutton e-Education Institute. As an instructor, my time is spent teaching GEOG 482 and GEOG 483 in the Certificate Program in GIS and the Master of GIS Program. As an administrator in the MGIS Program, my time is spent communicating with current and prospective students and assisting our MGIS advising team. I track the progress of students in our professional degree program, communicate regularly with students to identify questions and concerns, ensure that students’ questions are addressed, manage capstone project work, and coordinate schedules of students and advisers for public project presentations and commencement ceremonies. I’m very proud of our top-ranked programs. Be sure to check out all of the great things we have going on in online geospatial education.
