Mapping the Environment with Sensory Perception
Strengths of the Module
- Explore the implications of different data types used in environmental problem communication.
- Evaluate the environmental impact of a human-modified site on a community using sensory data that they have collected with a data collection plan they have developed.
- Compare and contrast different conceptual approaches (sensory and geoscientific) to mapping environmental issues.
- Create a map to communicate the environmental impact (social and geophysical) of a human-modified site to an interdisciplinary audience.
- Analyze quantitative, qualitative, and survey data and compare the impact of each separately and combined.
- Develop a sensory data collection protocol to reduce errors in the data collection process.
- Collect and record qualitative and quantitative sensory data as part of an environmental study.
- Map their sensory data in a way that is both accurate and communicates effectively.
A great fit for courses in:
- Introductory geoscience
- Environmental science
- Environmental geology
- Environmental studies
- Environmental justice or social issues
- Contaminant analysis
