GCC responds to the Coronavirus Outbreak. GCC has moved to remote online instruction.

Geography Hybrid Instructor

Are you interested in learning more about How the Earth Works! Then Maybe Physical Geography is For You…

Geography 101-41 is a hyflex/hybrid class, this means we will be interacting both online & on campus. This is officially a Distance Education (DE) class, but there will also be plenty of time to meet in person to discuss what we are learning and you will have many ways to reach out to me or fellow students if you have questions while working online.

Spring 2020:
We will meet in person every Wednesday afternoon: 1:55-3:20 pm in SV223 at GCC (2/19/20-6/10/20). These meetings are mandatory and students can be dropped due to absence (so be sure to communicate ASAP if you must miss a session).

Every week we will also do work online.

Canvas, GCC's course management system, is our hub and our medium for communications. Each week we will use Canvas to complete "asynchronous" activities such as discussion boards, projects and interactive lessons. You will have access to due dates and new materials each week along with our online textbook chapters and powerpoint presentations in our canvas module section. 

You can find a wealth of information about Canvas on the GCC website (as well as links or phone numbers where you can get tech support). DE classes offer greater flexibility but are typically more demanding than traditional courses since they require good time management and discipline, so be sure to plan accordingly.
