Geography

Thanks to your undergraduate degree in Geography you have landed a paid internship at CBC NL as a web content producer.

Seeing the success of CBC Vancouver’s podcast series, “2050: Degrees of Change”, the national broadcaster decides to create a similar series locally adapted for communities across the country. Your senior producer at CBC NL tasks you with developing online content using Google Slides to accompany the podcast series being developed for communities in Newfoundland and Labrador.

 

Instructions

  1. Familiarize yourself with CBC Vancouver’s podcast series “2050: Degrees of Change” by listening to at least the following episodes [most episodes are approximately 20-30 minutes long]:
    1. EPISODE ONE: B.C. in 2050
    2. EPISODE FOUR: Cities
    3. EPISODE SIX: The Global Village
    4. EPISODE SEVEN: A New Future [this episode is approximately 1 hour]

 

  1. Familiarize yourself with Google Slides. Also, read “Connecting With Your Reader” p. 16-27 in Booth et al’s, The Craft of Research [available online via MUN Library]. Booth et al’s chapter will help you begin imagining creative and engaging ways to tell a good analytical story.

 

  1. To frame and organize your story you will draw on course material and your own research. The course related sources are:
    1. the lectures covering the four forces or factors recorded for GEOG 1050 [demography; growing demand; climate change; and globalization].
    2. Ellis’s Anthropocene: a very short introduction.

 

  1. You will also need to conduct your own research to complete this assignment. Begin by choosing a community in Newfoundland and Labrador that appears in Figure 1 or Figure 2 of “Projected Impacts of Climate Change for the Province of Newfoundland & Labrador” [p. 12-13] and begin collecting material to incorporate into your  based web project that you design to accompany CBC NL’s version of the podcast “2050: Degrees of Change”. Keep in mind that the availability of relevant data and information may vary from community to community.

Assignment as a whole body of work

All of the above.

*Note: The course materials represent a ground floor. Your own research is what will build off that ground floor to create a compelling analytical narrative relevant to the assignment.

 

 

Requirements and submission instructions

Each Project Section (see table above) should be composed of:

 

  • Up to 500 words of text.

 

  • An appropriate mix of relevant maps, data, and/or multimedia materials.

 

  • All sources must be cited appropriately in a bibliography/source page of your  project. Citations to course lecture material, to Ellis’s text, and to all research material used in your project are required. The bibliography must be kept up to date with each due date. It is strongly recommended that you use Zotero or a similar bibliographic manager to help you organize your research sources, create, and maintain your bibliography/sources page in your  project. Zotero is free, scholarly, and open source: https://www.zotero.org/ . Watch this short (<2min) video to see Zotero in action and why you should use it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FOu94Ah85Y
