9 Lam & ChanFIG Com 2, Prague, June Sustainable development Sustainable development or just match-fitting? Globalization, commodification, market-driven. Widening and advancing geomatics knowledge. Value-added programs, professional recognitions, career prospects broadened. Research-informed curriculum; multidisciplinary and integrated curriculum; high-tech for subject contents and educational technology. Educational research, research-informed teaching for up-to-date (applicable) knowledge. Fig. Teacher education; staff development.
