In this Lunchbyte, Dario, Koen and Limin will tell you more about using visual tools such as Google Maps, Google Earth, and ArcGIS StoryMaps in lectures. As experienced experts, they will share how they approached this.

Dario had his students from the Virtual Exchange program "Environmental Democracy in Delta Regions" create online maps in Google Maps, allowing them to visualize ecological challenges and contemplate appropriate policy responses. Using Google Earth, students presented their findings to each other.

Limin had students in the course "The Chinese Civil War" conduct research on Chinese history. Using the ArcGIS StoryMaps platform, students created an online multimedia essay on a chosen topic. They were encouraged to use visualization tools, including maps, to elucidate the subject.

The language of communication during this Lunchbyte is English.

Please note that lunch will be provided for all participants who attend in person.
