Hi.
My name is Don Boyes, and I teach several courses about geographic  information  systems, or GIS, at the University of Toronto.
I love to teach, and I love to learn – about GIS, how to be a better professor, and how  technology  can help me and my students.
On this site, you’ll find  information  about me and my courses, my blog posts, and some tips for students. You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Coursera.
Teaching with  Technology .
I’m fascinated by the potential that technology has to help my students learn more efficiently and  effectively , at a time and location that works best for them.
I teach some courses online, but many of my courses give students the option to  attend  lectures in person, live online, or time-shift and watch a recording later.
I like giving students options, so each person can choose what works best for them.
What I Teach.
I specialize in teaching the theory and  application  of GIS to undergraduate and graduate students at U of T.  I currently teach five different GIS courses that draw several hundred students per year from a wide variety of disciplines.
The courses range from introductory to advanced, with opportunities to use real data in realistic scenarios, .

Using industry standard software from Esri Inc

For more info, see my Courses page.
I have adapted some of my course material into four massive open  online  courses (MOOCs) offered through Coursera.
