LTC: Urban Lessons: Teaching the City with Connected Students

Carleton College Learning and Teaching Center, PEPS, Carleton College Learning and Teaching Center


In off-campus programs and in the classroom, we ask students to make sense of urban areas, even though not all students are familiar with or comfortable in such environments. How can we help students "decode" cities effectively so they are able to look beyond surface qualities to the often hidden life of an urban area, or to understand the relationship of cities to the surrounding countryside and to the larger global community? With: Devashree Gupta, Assistant Professor of Political Science; Humberto Huergo, Professor of Spanish; Robert Oden, President and Professor of Religion.
