Approach to Teaching and Sample Syllabi
Our courses cover important and timely topics. Each course is developed through backwards design to ensure that every topic covered, reading assignment, applied/service learning project, and assessment activity helps students achieve course objectives. Our courses are also designed explicitly to 1) expose students to relevant research, 2) apply learning, 3) build critical soft skills (e.g., facilitation, intrapersonal and group communication, oral and written communication, leadership, project management).
Several of our courses satisfy university general education requirements too! These courses include:
- EMGT 101: Emergencies, Disasters and Catastrophes: Social and Behavioral Sciences category
- EMGT 425: World Disasters: Social and Behavioral Sciences AND Global categories
- EMGT 445: Understanding Vulnerable Populations in Disaster: Quantitative Reasoning, Social and Behavioral Sciences, AND Diversity categories
ALL COURSES ARE AVAILABLE TO BE TAKEN REMOTE SYNCHRONOUS OR IN PERSON AS OF FALL 2020!
