Globalization: An Introduction for K-12 Teachers immerses teachers from all disciplines and grade levels in an intensive exploration of rapid global changes. The course discusses global issues in government, economics, culture, technology, environment and health.
An online version of World View's week-long on-campus “Global Education Leaders Program,” the course requires participants to read, discuss, and reflect on the most important issues facing America and the world today.
The course is six weeks long and will offer four CEUs for successful completion.
The goal of the course is to help K-12 teachers become aware of the effects of globalization on our world, our country, our state, and especially our schools. By the end of the course, educators should be able to significantly contribute to curriculum planning to help faculty and students become more globally aware.
