Q2S Enhancing Pedagogy stipends were used to support the formation of a Faculty Learning Community to develop a new course, LAS 2000. Five faculty members from the College of Arts and Letters and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences collectively designed and produced an fully online, team taught semester course. LAS 2000 is an introductory course to Latin American Studies, a requirement in the LAS Minor Program. The course introduces students to the study of Latin America from various perspectives: Anthropology, Sociology, Geography, Literature, and Theater/Film, with the goal of fostering greater cross-cultural understanding of the region and enhancing diverse, global perspectives. The course is open to students of any major and has no prerequisites.
