PAH 150A3 - The Great Outdoors: Improving Health, Wellness, and Creativity by Living Life Outside
From physicians and neuroscientists to poets and songwriters, people around the world have long expressed how even brief immersion in nature can improve the human condition. This course--PAH 150A3 The Great Outdoors: Improving Health, Wellness, and Creativity by Living Life Outside--explores humanities artifacts, including essays, poetry, podcasts, memes, songs, public art, and other creative expressions, to discover what they have to tell us about understanding the human experience and our interface with the natural world. While exploring the course content, students enrolled in the course flex their creative muscles while thinking critically to create "one-pagers." These one-pagers are mash-ups of sketches, photos, keywords, quotes, and insights. The images and words are strategically placed on a single page to communicate a visually interesting and concise message. This collection is a sample of one-pagers created by students in the Fall 2020 cohort.
