Brief excerpt from interview: [In World Regional Geography] we basically go through all the regions of the world. To some extent it is place-based when we go through the Australia-Oceania region. And students also have to do current events and that kind of thing. And we also watch a documentary on Nainoa Thompson and navigation and that kind of thing. What I do with that course is... make North America first and then Australia-Oceania because I feel like it's better for students to have that kind of place-based understanding of culture, politics, and all those things from a perspective that they can engage with a little bit easier and then go and look at, for example, Southeast Asia [or] sub-Saharan Africa, because they're able to sort of relate it back.
