3rd Annual Area Studies Workshop: Sharing Curriculum on Global Studies and Area Studies Electives and Approaches with Experts and Teacher-Scholars

Saturday, October 20, 2018, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Georgetown University, CCAS Boardroom, ICC #141

In this third annual outreach collaboration between the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, we are proud to showcase the efforts of the Global Curriculum Fellowship sponsored by District of Columbia Public Schools’ Office of Global Education. A select group of teacher fellows, GU student research aides, and School of Foreign Service faculty reviewers worked throughout the past year to create course syllabi for electives that rarely receive sufficient time, attention, and resources for development. We invite teachers from the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area to hear the story of this work, learn from academic teaching faculty about approaches to teaching and learning about these complex and interconnected topics, and gain access to the course syllabi.  As we have done in previous area/global studies workshops, participants will hear from experts, share ideas and network with their colleagues.

Lunch will be served and resources provided. Click here for registration information.

This event is made possible in part by a Title VI grant from the U. S. Department of Education, which is funding a National Resource Center of the Middle East and North Africa at Georgetown University, with additional funding from the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies for education outreach and public events.
