BRAND NEW COURSE!!

TITLE: SUSTAINABILITY AND ENVIRONMENT

DESCRIPTION: One global issue that demands immediate attention is how to balance societal and environmental health. This course explores a contemporary ‘state of the planet’ across ecological concerns, including global climate change, desertification, species extinction, food crises, water quality and shortages, infectious diseases, and storm mitigation. Educators will then weigh environmental costs against the demands of societal development. Students will analyze current IGO, NGO, governmental and community-based organizations’ work to address global environmental concerns on a local, regional, national, and global scale coupled. Students will also conduct a gap analysis of what needs to be addressed in the near (5-10 year) and longer-term (10-50 year) future.

BRAND NEW COURSE!!

TITLE: DISCUSSION LEADERSHIP FOR GLOBAL COMPETENCE

DESCRIPTION:Global classrooms are inherently discursive as they require teachers and students engage across difference, both in the material learned and in interpersonal relationships. Facilitating discussion can be challenging given their dynamic nature and situational quality. This course will provide participants with various types of discussion environments (e.g., Socratic, deliberative, interpretive, simulative) along with the tools to structure and facilitate those interactions. Special attention will be given to the intersections of discussion leadership and global learning; participants will gain an understanding of which approaches are most congruent given the larger curricular aims of a course.
