Dr. Lynn Moorman shares her passion for learning about landscapes as an avid geographer, educator, and volunteer. Lynn is a Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada, where she teaches physical geography, geomorphology (landforms and processes), and advanced digital mapping and geospatial technologies.
Her research interests lie at the intersection of physical geography, learning sciences, and applied geospatial and visualization technology, including virtual and augmented reality. She is the Geospatial Education lead for an operational sea ice safety mapping program with SmartICE, working with Inuit in Canadian Arctic communities to use near-real time satellite imagery to keep ice travel safe.
Lynn contributes to national and international geography education organizations, including Canadian Geographic Education, National Geographic, the International Geography Olympiad (iGeo), and is a Canadian representative for the International Commission on Geographic Education. She is a Fellow and Chair of the Research Committee of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS), and a Canadian Geographic Adventure Ambassador. Lynn recently received the RCGS Camsell and Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Medals for her contributions as well as the Canadian Association of Geographers Teaching Excellence Award.
Lynn’s active and participatory approach welcomes everyone to learn about and share their experiences of the exceptionally beautiful landscapes we are fortunate to travel through. When not on board or in the classroom, Lynn can be found travelling the world loaded down with cool tech!
