July 14, 2015 - IAS Students in Jin-Kyu Jung’s BIS352 “Mapping Communities” class created a number of maps for the City of Bothell in Spring 2015. “Mapping Communities” is designed as a Community-Based Learning and Research (CBLR) course from its inception. It provides a unique opportunity for students to critically examine the constructions of both “community” and “mapping.” The larger goal of constructing community maps is to understand a community’s needs, and to connect to local communities through the mapping process.  Two students, Jef Song and Sung Chu produced a great video of the work done in this course. At the end of the course, students provided the resulting maps to the communities, and shared reflections and assessment.
