The objective of the Global Citizenship and Sustainability (GCS) program is to help students learn about global sustainable development in a localized context involving isolated and remote indigenous communities living in tropical rain-forested areas that are of global ecological significance and which are regarded as highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. NTRES 4002 is the post-departure course for students that spend January in Borneo (NTRES 4001) working with indigenous communities on community-based research. This course is focused on post-departure reflection, community-based engagement, and analysis.
Students will be able to reflect on critical service-learning, re-entry, and global citizenship after the Borneo experience.
Students will be able to analyze data from interviews conducted in Borneo.
Students will be able to utilize research project management skills by developing a timeline and deliverable schedule for community outreach products.
Students will be able to lead and facilitate class sessions and present research findings to partners, stakeholders, faculty and students.
Students will be able to communicate with stakeholders by organizing a feedback session, presenting work, and facilitating discussion.
Students will be able to receive and give feedback on research and outreach.
