InTeGrate Modules work on-line! This is an example of an InTeGrate module, taught on-line and asynchronously in a large class format.

This module served as the culminating activity for the course, and students were challenged to apply systems thinking in an exploration of the complex, multiscalar factors that contribute to the wicked problem of global food security in their assigned region.
