EARTH 14: Our National Parks (EARTH 114A, GEOLSCI 14, GEOLSCI 114A)

Explore the history and natural science of three national parks proximal to Stanford. Under the guidance of instructors, students will work in teams to learn about chosen aspects of these parks, develop dynamic self-guided tours for public consumption, and implement (and publish) these tours using the XibitEd app for iPhones. Students will learn how to present their findings to a general, non-scientific audience, delineate physical locations at which storytelling will take place through the XibitEd system, and create and configure the content for the system. The course will culminate in the publishing of the experiential learning tours, as well as a weekend-long field trip to the Pinnacles National Park

EARTH 83: Nature Journaling

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of nature journaling. Nature journaling is a practice of observing and recording the natural world, much as one might record their lives in a daily journal. Nature journaling provides a path for sharpening curiosity and attention as it deepens understanding and appreciation of nature. In this class, students will learn the basics of observation, inquiry, and engagement with your surroundings. You will learn basic drawing techniques to help achieve those learning outcomes. Using common resources (pens, pencils, paper) students will record observations, drawings, diagrams, descriptions and maps. This course is designed to be interactive and community based. Students will share photos of their journal pages and will give and receive constructive feedback from both instructors and peers. Content will include botany, wildlife, geology, and astronomy, while still primarily focusing on the process of observing and recording. No prior knowledge or experience is required. Assignments can be done in the wilderness, in your backyard, or even in your house. (Remote delivery in Spring 2020)
