Speaker: Catherine DuBreck

Date and Time: May 15, 2024 at 11:00 AM

Topic: Community College Internationalization Fellowship (CCIF) Program

Abstract: Catherine DuBreck will summarize her experience with the Community College Internationalization Fellowship (CCIF) Program through Cornell University and the Cornell-Syracuse South Asia Consortium and showcase her CCIF project – the development of a small geospatial/geography course unit with a lecture and lab about India. The purpose of this CCIF project is to introduce students to another country and culture outside of their own, to expose them to global issues like poverty and informal settlements, and to show students a real-world application of geospatial technology used to identify the changes (growth over time/sprawl, landscape, topography) of an informal settlement.
