  • Midd.Data Lightning Talk: Data Literacy through Geography with Niwaeli Kimambo (3/11)

    Date: Thursday, March 11, 2021
    Time: 12:40pm - 1:30pm
    Location: Online
    Geographers recognize that many social and environmental problems are place-specific. For example: exposure to climate change risks or access to greenspace depend on where you live. In this talk, I will highlight how training in Geography exemplifies Midd.Data goals of data literacy in a liberal arts setting. Our geography students receive holistic data literacy training that links theoretical and technical knowledge. Using examples from recent class exercises, I will discuss how we prepare students to be versatile and data-driven problem solvers of our world’s pressing challenges.

The fund supports international service-learning and community-building internships and/or related volunteer service experiences for undergraduate students. These internships and service initiatives may be student designed; preference is given to those opportunities in a culture distinctly different from the applicant’s background. You can utilize this fund for short-term opportunities such as a school break or longer-term projects (J-Term or semester-long).

    For more information visit go/cccs. Contact Ashley Laux, alaux@middlebury.edu, for questions or to brainstorm project ideas and resources.
