This course engages students in the diversity of American urban life and introduces various modes of analyzing socio-cultural scenes, communities, and urban institutions. In the first part of the course, we will lay the foundations for understanding urban processes and communities. We will examine the racial and ethnic diversity in cities and the ways people understand and cope with being in an environment filled with "strangers". We will develop an understanding of urban political economy and the effects of inequality and economic strain on urban life. In the second part of the course, we will focus on the effects of globalization, post-industrial decline, and post-modernism on cities. In this section, we will focus on the production and consumption of urban spaces. We will look at the ways American cities have developed and changed as well as the competing views and political contestations behind these transformations.
Created by Michelle Millar Fisher of the CUNY Graduate Center and Karen Shelby of Baruch College, "Art History Teaching Resources (AHTR) is a peer-populated platform for art history teachers. AHTR is home to a constantly evolving and collectively authored online repository of art history teaching content including, but not limited to, lesson plans, video introductions to museums, book reviews, image clusters, and classroom and museum activities. The site promotes discussion and reflection around new ways of teaching and learning in the art history classroom through a peer-populated blog, and fosters a collaborative virtual community for art history instructors at all career stages."
Outputting the digital blueprint into a final fast prototype is important, but inputting a hand-made sculpture into the computer is as important in the creative process. There are many high-tech electronic devices that can help the artist generate form from his/her sculpture quickly. This process is called “reverse engineering of prototypes.” Touch Probes (Contact Method) The concept of the touch probe involves a measuring tip attached by several limbs with rotational joints. The design of the joints and limbs determines the reach of the touch probe. The measuring tip of the touch probe is used to measure the exact coordinates on the surface of the scanned object.

FORUMS is a collection of open online resources supporting post-secondary instruction of music in general studies. FORUMS includes links to authentic, academic and scholarly materials; pedagogical materials. FORUMS seeks to build community among gen ed music teachers. See the FORUMS and community box below for more information. In this prototype pilot version (FORUMS v.1.1), the best way to navigate the site is to use the pull-down tabs from the above menu. FORUMS’ purposes are:
1. to provide an access point to collected, evaluated open access music sites for undergraduate students and faculty;
2. to develop community among those teaching undergraduate general education students; and
3. to support the teaching of music to adult learners, especially students in general studies college courses.
Site users include, but are not limited to: students and teachers of music in general studies classes and adult learners of music worldwide.
Contributors include, but are not limited to: music educators, music performers, musicologists, ethnomusicologists, museum and archive curators and educators, music librarians, SoTL specialists, and others with expertise related to teaching music to adult learners.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Data Visualization Applications are driving forces behind the recent explosion in the "Digital Humanities." They enable scholars and students alike to ask new kinds of questions, and to illustrate the answers in powerful ways. This site intends to provide an overview of popular GIS and DVA platforms, both proprietary and open access. It summarizes the degree of difficulty involved in using these platforms, discusses support available for users at Brooklyn College, and gives links to training and tutorials freely available on the web.
Welcome to the Heritage Language Program at Brooklyn College!
The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures offers Heritage Language Programs in Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, and Spanish. Our Heritage Language Programs consist of two-semester sequences of courses that prepare students to take content courses in the language. The Heritage Language Programs include beginning and intermediate courses for bilingual learners who have had little or no formal education in the language, but have a connection to the language through community and family ties. Our programs will expand the oral and written communication skills of heritage language learners through a project-based approach to learning.
These courses use the language students have grown-up listening to at home as the foundation for developing their proficiency in reading, writing, and speaking the home language. We know that the proficiency levels and experiences with the home language vary greatly among heritage speakers. In our Heritage Language Programs, heritage speakers of all levels (beginning, intermediate or advanced) can take courses that have been created specifically to respond to their unique needs and build upon the skill set of the heritage learner at different stages of development.
Heritage learners can both meet the Brooklyn College language requirement and continue to expand their knowledge of Arabic, Chinese, Haitian Creole, Russian and Spanish and further develop their communicative skills.

This is a supplement to my syllabus for USSO 10100, United States Society 10100. This supplement contains links to online resources that cover the subjects that would ordinarily be covered in a textbook. Some resources are literary selections. Other resources are videos. All of the resources included in this supplement to my syllabus are free. This is one approach to a ZTC USSO course. -Johnnie Wilder, Ph.D.
A project of Macaulay Honors College and CUNY Advance, "Science Forward is a new type of undergraduate science seminar, helping students to see science as a lens on the world, a way of approaching questions and challenges. The course focuses on the critical thinking skills in use across the scientific disciplines, which we have summarized as the “science senses.” Starting with critical issues in the contemporary world, from climate change to the social and economic implications of artificial intelligence, the course encourages active learning and inquiry-based instruction."
This material provides an introduction to a tissue engineering module in an experimental methods in biomedical engineering course. Students are expected to be familiar with this material prior to a pre-assessment taken at the beginning of class as we have condense lecture time this semester.
