Bringing Global Issues Alive Without Getting on a Plane: Finding Connections in our Own Backyards

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Workshop participants should expect a practical walk through of a course and accompanying methodology that connect global issues to local realities. While economic development, food security, peace, and environmental health are topics that can be studied by spinning the globe and looking across the world, they can also be explored by focusing on dynamics in our own communities. Conference attendees who are interested in global-to-local linkages, the role of political will, capacity-building processes, and service learning projects will find the workshop inspiring. Attendees will gain an understanding of items to consider in the early stages of course development, the skills needed to brainstorm with the community leaders and providers, and an appreciation of lessons learned over the past three years by the workshop facilitator.
