ARHU Faculty Tech Talk: Mapping US Latina/o Culture in D.C. using Google Maps & Student Video

Dr. Ana Patricia Rodriguez of the School of Languages, Literatures and Culture, in collaboration with the National Park Service and the students in “U.S. Latina/o Studies I: An Historical Overview to the 1960’s,” developed a Latina/o-theme tour of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The tour featured landmarks, monuments, memorials, community centers, and organizations. The students individually wrote narratives about selected sites. In groups, they produced a marketing plan, brochure, Google map and website, and post-tour evaluation on SurveyMonkey. Dr. Rodriguez will be joined by Janel Brennan-Tillmann, Language Instructional Technologist for the School of Languages, Literatures and Culture.

All faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to attend. Light refreshments will be provided.
