Jennifer Sliko: Using Cli-Fi in Planet Earth at Pennsylvania State University - Harrisburg
Planet Earth is an introductory course about Earth, with emphasis on the processes the affect the landscape of Earth. Students learn about fundamental geologic processes and how they impact humans and the environment on regional and global scales.
