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 and ICT literacy, collaboration, intercultural communication, data analysis, and civic engagement. This course will explore the importance of such skills and build a case for re-envisioning how we prepare students for an interconnected world. Participants will examine the critical global issues that affect our lives, including globalization and the global economy, environmental challenges, health, and human rights. These issues require interdisciplinary approaches and solutions; as such, this program focuses on how to integrate global thinking and topics within all content areas and grade levels, including social studies, STEM, the arts, and information sciences. All K-12 educators and administrators are encouraged to join this course to consider how to bring global understanding to their students and school community.

Open to all K-12 educators.
