Remote Sensing Training: Methods & Best Practices

This three part webinar series shares the training best practices used by NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET). The skills taught in this webinar will enable participants to develop their own online or face-to-face remote sensing trainings for their organization or community of practice. This webinar series will provide best practices on how to: 

  • build a remote sensing training program
  • perform effective outreach for trainings
  • put together and deliver quality presentations
  • communicate effectively with both scientific and nonscientific audiences
Learning Objectives: 
  • Understand the key steps needed to develop an online or onsite training
