The Conway Institute, part of The Conway School (formerly the Conway School of Landscape Design) in Northampton, MA, USA is offering several short online courses beginning this month:

QGIS for All: From LiDar to Topos with QGIS - Learn the basics of QGIS and how to prepare a topographic map and slope analysis for your design project using this free software. Starts 1/13/22.

Site Grading Fundamentals - Learn how to design grading for a site to prevent erosion, move or infiltrate stormwater, and/or create a resilient building site.  Starts 1/23/22.

QGIS for ArcMap Users: Making the Transition - Learn how QGIS and ArcMap compare and how to problem-solve using the free software of QGIS. Starts 2/10/22.

Solving Complex Site Grading Problems: A Hands-On Workshop in Grading Design - Building on the Site Grading Fundamentals course, this course will explore more complex grading problems and provide plenty of time for instructor interaction. Participants need to have a solid base of understanding of grading prior to class. A prerequisite for this course is either completion of the Site Grading Fundamentals course or completion of a grading exercise provided prior to registration. Starts 3/13/22.

Environmental Art in the Landscape: From Idea to Installation - Art integrated into a landscape setting helps to illustrate the ecological, social, and historical narrative of a garden or landscape and can contribute to the overall sense of place. Get a window into the process of Environmental Art from idea to installation through an examination of Todd’s project “The Nest” at the Hitchcock Center for the Environment as a case study. You’ll see films, onsite commentary, and have time for Q and A with Todd. 1/18/22.
