WildNav - Online Workshop Content Review

This is a working session in which we'll evaluated course material via walkthrough. Participants will be asked to optionaly download and print three (3) maps on 11x17 paper. This most likely means a trip to FedEX or similar. your cost per map will be about $1.40 + tax.

The Foothills Navigation Committee is in the process of developing an online workshop for our Wilderness Navigation course.  Part of this process is a walkthrough of the course material with Nav Instructors.

We plan to run our final online workshops in February as follows:

  • Ahead of time, students download and print three 11x17 CalTopo PDF topo maps. Links to be provided.
  • The workshop is a ZOOM meeting,
  • Instructor(s) will share their screen and step through course material. One problem set at a time.
  • Then, students will developed their answers using the printed paper maps.
  • Then, the instructor will provide and discuss the answers.
  • Then move to the next problem set until complete.
  • Currently, 30 student per workshop, our hope is a 1:6 instructor to student ration (~5 instructs per workshop

This meeting (12/7) is to review the overall approach and specific implementation. A practice session run like a real workshop, will be scheduled later.

We're looking for experianced instructors / course developers. Regardless of branch affiliation. You are all welcome.

You can still attend without the printed maps but your ability to provide comprehensive feedback will be compromised.

Due to Zoom "bombing", RSVP is required. Zoom meeting info will be provided the morning of Monday, Dec 7th to those who have RSVP'd.
