Interactive and participatory learning methodologies are used to encourage reflection on the teaching of contemporary social and global issues in a variety of educational contexts.

This is a three-semester hour course offered Wednesdays on-campus to students in MEd Focus on Global Perspectives from September 6 to December 1 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm
