Global Classroom Update
As part of our Global Classroom Project the Students from Leuphana University have visited Arizona and ASU from Septmeber 14 to 29th. During these two weeks, activities included
1. Developing of Group Project Prospectus for the rest of the Global Classroom:
During Class time and using specific homework assignments, each international team of students will developed a Project Prospectus that contains: (1) the driving question each team wishes to address; (2) a motivations statement that shows why we should care about the question; (3) an analysis of the problems connected to the question; (4) a set of methods that will be employed for the development of the projects.
2. Joint exploration of the main Urban areas in Arizona
Outside of regular class time, students and instructors will visit different areas relevant for the development of the projects. These exploratory activities aim to bridge the different understandings of urban environments in Arizona from the German and American perspectives. In this way, we aim to enhance a shared understanding of urban complexity in the students that will anchor the projects on a more stable and shared ground. These included:
After the Visit of the German students the groups that have formed during the visit, consisting of students from ASU and Leuphana University, will develop their research projects through a series of three more modules.
