Using a Drone as a Vehicle for Learning Workshop

This session describes a freshman seminar in which a drone was used in a mock humanitarian aid mission to map a disaster area and deliver aid. As well as teaching teamwork skills, the mission became a focal point for learning activities relating to intercultural understanding and the value of multiple perspectives. Since drones have applications in many fields, this class may be a useful model for other experiential classes in the Humanities. Participants will have an opportunity to try a flight simulator and will leave the workshop with an idea of what is involved in conducting such a class.
