Incorporating cutting edge technologies in field camps and course experiences is highly rewarding for students and often very challenging for instructors. Geodetic tools such as GPS, terrestrial laser scanning, and structure from motion are being more widely used in geoscience sub-disciplines. Developing and documenting best practices and instructor and student guides provides a foundation for instructors to work from when considering how to incorporate these technologies into field education.
