Teacher Training: “Culture and Arts on a Global Stage” for K-12 and Community College Educators
June 22, 2021 | 10:00 am - June 24, 2021 | 12:00 pm
Musicians and poets, artists and dancers have played and written, painted and danced their way around the world through centuries – illuminating the time and the interplay of peoples and societies. In this program, Culture and the Arts on a Global Stage, UNC World View provides a professional development program for all K-12 and community college educators to explore examples of the ways different cultures use the arts to celebrate, reflect, document and heal their societies. The arts have a unique ability to open new dialogues and stimulate ideas which leads to a deeper understanding of our global connectivity.
UNC World View participants will be introduced to a variety of cultures and explore ways in which culture and the arts can be integrated across disciplines and grade levels. University professors and performing artists will share their expertise and their craft. Global education and area studies resources will be shared by representatives of UNC and Duke National Resource Centers. Join us this summer to gain new knowledge and resources to prepare students to engage in our interconnected and diverse world. 1.0 CEU / 10 PDCH offered. Scholarships available!
