Title: Spring 2021 Course Highlight: INAF 385 – Placemaking

INAF 385-01 – Placemaking

Instructor: Betsi Stephen

In response to student feedback on the experience and challenges of learning through remote instruction, the SFS has created a new learning opportunity and course called “Placemaking”.

In this course you will be asked to explore your place and connect it to the core values that underlie a Georgetown education. This guided, self-designed course will pair introspection and reflection with experiential learning around the uniqueness of the place you inhabit for the semester. There will be extremely limited Zoom times for the entire semester. Indeed, this course is designed to get you off your computer by exploring some of the following:

Mapping: an interactive mapping exercise focused on exploring your “place”.

Walking the talk: A new Georgetown podcast series exploring life, purpose and well-being.

Designing: Design your own reading list for the course.

Building: Build local networks with fellow students and alumni in the “place” you are taking courses from this semester.

Connecting: Connect virtually with peers around the world.

There are several credit options available. See INAF 385 in MyAccess for the full syllabus and additional information, and contact Professor Betsi Stephen with any questions.
