Educators are increasingly aware that the challenges of our changing world will require students to think and learn in new ways. In addition to teaching core academic content, our schools need to cultivate key skills: global awareness, critical thinking, media literacy, collaboration, intercultural communication, technological ability, and civic engagement. This course will explore the importance of such skills and will build a case for re-envisioning how we prepare students for an interconnected world. Participants will examine the global economy, the environment, health, social justice, education, and the globalization of culture. Interested participants should be willing to take on a leadership role in their districts and to be advocates for global education across disciplines and grade levels.
Suitable for all K-12 educators and curriculum leaders.
Course fee: $600, plus additional fee for graduate credit.
