K-12 Seminar: Global Education in a New World (virtual)
October 21, 2021 | 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
In March 2020 education changed as COVID-19 rapidly became a pandemic. Teaching and learning were reshaped worldwide. In this program from UNC World View, participants will explore how the field of education has been impacted across the globe. Participants will learn from experts as they meet several peer educators teaching in other countries and connect how the pandemic was handled in classrooms from multiple regions. Participants will learn from each other how educators were personally and professional impacted. Experts will also discuss the importance of social/emotional health and building teacher and student resiliency as educators serve all students, preparing them to be the next generation of global leaders.
Sponsored by UNC World View. Support provided by the UNC Office of the Provost and the UNC-Duke Area Studies Centers.
