Motivating Clients to Develop Positive Financial Behaviors

11:00 am EDT

One of the biggest challenges for financial educators and counselors is encouraging their students and/or clients to adopt positive financial behaviors that can enhance their financial security. This 90-minute webinar will describe ways to prompt positive behavior change in others. The webinar will begin with a discussion of three leading behavior change theories and the concepts of locus of control and time preference. It will then discuss 20 specific financial behavior change strategies, relevant concepts from the field of behavioral finance, and implications for financial practitioners. This presentation is the first of 3 presentations in the 3-day Personal Finance Virtual Learning Event.

Selecting, Downloading, Displaying, and Understanding Landsat Imagery

10:30 am EDT

Many educators are interested in offering introduction to remote sensing courses, but may not have access to specialized remote sensing software packages.  These software packages are often expensive, and can be complicated to users who lack training and experience. 

ArcGIS Desktop software is often available to many educational institutions, and may be an appropriate software option for many educators to provide introduction to remote sensing.

This Webinar is the first in a series designed to support the educational community. Through this Webinar, you will lean how to search and download Landsat Imagery using Glovis and Earth Explorer.


Presenters:
  • Tammy Parece, PhD candidate, Geospatial and Environmental Analysis, Virginia Tech
  • James B. Campbell, Professor, Department of Geography, Virginia Tech
  • John McGee, Geospatial Extension Specialist / VirginiaView Coordinator, Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation, Virginia Tech
