I'm offering a free introductory online course in GIS in June/July as my contribution to the 2021 programme of Open Education for a Better World, tackling the Sustainable Development Goals using open education.
Before I teach the full course, I'll run several taster sessions in May, to get feedback on my teaching approach and learning materials. I value your input on what topic these tasters should be - please complete the poll to indicate your preferred topics and help me decide. I welcome input from potential participants and managers who are aware of the most common problems their colleagues encounter when using GIS.
The poll is open until Thursday 15th April, and you can see everyone's choices after you place your own votes. Responses are anonymous, so if you'd like to secure a place on the tasters or full course, please comment or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions, please ask below. Thank you very much for your input!

The full course is aimed at complete beginners, but the tasters will be designed as quick refresher sessions, to help you improve your GIS practice and tackle common problems when working with spatial data. Each taster session will be open to around 10 people, so I can provide individual feedback.
The tasters and courses will both be taught using QGIS, a free, open source GIS software with the power and flexibility of ArcGIS.
