Dates: May 20 - June 28, 2013; Cross listed w/VS 052 OL1
Geographers take a multi-disciplinary approach to studying places, culture, people, and environments. In our quest to better understand Vermont we will consider weather, topography, history, landscape change, government, economy, literature and film, and contemporary social life. This course contributes to both the Geography curriculum and the Vermont Studies minor at the University of Vermont.
Students will take part in on-line discussions, conduct group work, listen to lectures and podcasts, read a number of different kinds of materials, watch films, conduct experiential learning activities, discuss literature, and produce their own knowledge about Vermont. In the process, students will gain a deeper understanding of how geographers go about studying the world.
Students are assessed based on their performance on discussion boards, critical reflection essays, 3 quizzes, 2 "field assignments", and an analysis paper on a topic of their choosing.
