Today's students live in an increasingly globalized and interconnected world. To successfully learn, collaborate, and lead in the future, they need to understand and wrestle with topics of global significance. This online course offers an introduction to trans-regional 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, Web 2.0 tool explorations, and weekly "Web Highlight" resources for classroom use.

This course will be offered completely online and will require a basic comfort level and interest in the use of computer technology as a medium for learning. The time for completing each week's work is approximately 3-4 hours.

Open to all K-12 educators.
