This report summarizes discussions among ten university instructors from six disciplines in a symposium hosted by Diana Sinton at the University of Redlands in June 2008. The meeting was developed as a cooperative effort with the UC Santa Barbara Center for Spatial Studies.
The intent of the symposium was to review opportunies and challenges for establishing an undergraduate general course on spatial thinking.
This event provided a foundation for the establishment of a website devoted to instruction about fundamental spatial concepts (see http://teachspatial.org) and to the establishment of academic minors in spatial studies at UC Santa Barbara and the University of Redlands.
