ID 265 - Global Issues in Education
“Global Issues in Education” - is an upper level undergrad seminar-style course (primarily for juniors and seniors). The course will explore the phenomena of ‘education’ and ‘international development’ as they pertain to a range of intersecting and cross-cutting themes and social issues including HIV&AIDS helath and education, gender and education, literacy/illiteracy and language, and displaced and migrant communities and educational access. The course will not only explore the themes and topics conceptually and theoretically - but will require students to engage with and conduct research within this conceptual ‘nexus’ of global social topics/issues and formal and non-formal education - within the local Worcester community. The course is also intended to prepare and enable students to conduct ‘applied’ capstone research.
