We currently have the following tags (and their wiki entries) related to education, learning, research and career, and there may be more (feel free to edit and add). Often several of them occur on the same question, suggesting that there may be some confusion/overlap in the "definitions" applied here in their wikis and wiki excerpts.
- education - 50 questions
For questions related to learning and resources about learning.
- learning - 50 questions
The acquisition of new skills and knowledge
- learning-resources - 52 questions
Resources used to aid the acquisition of skills and knowledge
- tutorial - 48 questions
A tutorial is a method of transferring knowledge and may be used as a part of a learning process. More interactive and specific than a book or a lecture; a tutorial seeks to teach by example and supply the information to complete a certain task.
- training - 13 questions
- thesis-topic - 2 questions
A number of questions have been asked on GIS SE to seek ideas for thesis topics:
- Main research areas currently under development for Geographic Information Science?
These are usually closed as being too broad. A more suitable place to ask such questions may be the GIS Chat Room.
- career - 24 questions
Questions seeking career advice have been discussed at Meta GIS SE in a Q&A titled Asking for career and/or industry advice on GIS Stack Exchange?, and the general consensus is that they are usually not a good fit for our focussed Q&A format.
A more suitable place for you to ask such questions may be our GIS Chat Room.
Searching for questions here about any specific topics of interest (e.g.Geology) may also offer you some insights.
Another useful link may be What are useful websites for scouting GIS related jobs?
Should some or all of these be made synonyms?
