"The CGGE has built a collection of online modules for undergraduate courses in geography...Six modules are currently available: National Identity, Population and Natural Resources, Global Economy, Global Climate Change, Water Resources, and Migration."

 

Each module includes:

1. A Conceptual Framework that introduces students to some of the key concepts, theories, and analytical approaches in geography.

2. Case studies illustrating how geographic concepts, methods, and technologies can be used to investigate and solve problems in different places and countries.

3. Collaborative projects that use e-learning technologies to connect geography classes in different countries for online collaboration and discussion."

 

If you haven't yet discovered the AAG's CGGE site, it is a treasure trove of activities, ideas, lesson plans, and case studies.
