In an increasingly globalized and interconnected world, teachers & students must understand and wrestle with topics of global significance in order to successfully learn, collaborate, and lead in the future. This 4-week asynchronous online course offers an introduction to issues that affect the lives and experiences of people living around the world. You will learn about globalization, the environment, and international health as well as the organizations and people who work together to find fair and sustainable solutions to today’s most pressing challenges. Using online resources and readings, scholar videos, and interactive discussion forums, you will collaborate to expand your thinking about global issues and to explore ways to integrate the study of global topics into your teaching. Course highlights include “Featured Teacher” ideas for K-12 classroom application, integration of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and weekly “web highlight” resources for classroom use.
