Abstract:Brief excerpt from interview: Grounding things in [the student's] own experience and grounding things in... what they are, seeing the world... makes these things more real. You can sit down and take notes on any topic, but as far as retaining it, certainly over time, to the extent that you can link it to other things that are going on... from a neural network perspective, the more things you can link to, the better it's gonna stick... One of the major goals of this course [is] giving students tools or lenses... through which to understand their experience. I think you have to be connecting back to what they're experiencing, and that is inherently place-based.
