New Online 7 Week Format during the Fall 2014 (last 7 weeks of semester)

EAPS 12000 is an introductory course for non majors that is approved for the core curriculum under Science, Technology and Society (STS).  Professor Jon Harbor is developing a totally new interactive online version of this course that will be available starting with the summer semester of 2014.  Modern geography is an exciting, relevant and broad discipline linking Physical and Environmental Sciences with Political Science, Economics, History and Sociology.  Modern geography helps students understand the world around them.

Murphy Award winner Jon Harbor is working with Instructional Designers in PEC to develop a completely revised version of EAPS 12000, Introduction to Geography, that is student-centered, relevant, and highly interactive.  Students will use online resources such as Google Earth to explore their world and develop skills and understanding in physical and human geography.  Students will customize their own experience for part of the course, based on their choice of a theme of particular interest they want to explore, and students will work in online teams for two real-world case studies.
