Connecting Your Classroom to the World
May 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join the Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of North Carolina and Duke University to learn about and discuss existing collaborations between UNC and Duke Area Studies and Minority Serving Institutions and Community Colleges which have led to the internationalization of curricula across disciplines and institutions.
The event will feature Minority Serving Institutions and Community Colleges across the Southeast that have successfully added global content to their classrooms. These curricula changes have varied, but always focus on how to best introduce global content to their students by integrating it into their courses.
Our speakers will discuss how UNC and Duke Area Studies Centers’ resources have helped faculty in these endeavors. The Area Studies Centers will also present the resources available, including funding for travel, research, and classroom resources.
