The primary responsibility of lab monitors is to provide in-lab and after-hours assistance to students in Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other technical geography classes. Lab monitors are responsible for being familiar with techniques currently taught in Introduction to Geographic Information Systems (GEOG 0120) and should be able to familiarize themselves with techniques used in other aspects of the Geography Department’s technical curriculum if the need arises.
