Teaching Geography in Today’s World
Updated: Jul 11, 2020
Teaching Geography in the 21st Century course through eNetLearning.
As the COVID-19 situation makes sadly and abundantly clear, geography is more relevant now than ever before. Furthermore, the maps and dashboards that you and millions of others have been looking at were created using powerful web based mapping tools. You have access to these same tools as an instructor, and so do your students!
How should modern geography be taught? What approaches, tools, readings, activities, and data should be used to foster engagement with the geographic inquiry process? This course will include discussion, videos, readings, short assessments, and hands-on activities with interactive 2D and 3D maps, infographics, field surveys, storymaps, and more.
