China and the World (Tuesdays, Jan. 31 - Feb. 28, 2023)
China’s rise has already reshaped our world and its influence continues to grow. Many welcome this. Some worry about it. K-12 educators are encouraged to learn more about China and its global reach in this five week online course. It is aimed at equipping teachers to bring more about these vital developments into their own classrooms.
The online seminar includes:
Recorded video lectures & readings
Mandatory online forum participation
Tuesday discussions (5-6 pm Pacific Time) with Clayton Dube via Zoom
Educators completing all course requirements can receive 3 USC Rossier School of Education continuing education units ($35/unit) or a certificate of completion (no charge).
This course is open only to K-12 educators. There is no charge to take the course. Reading assignments and recorded lectures for each week will be available in an online forum and are to be completed prior to the discussion sessions. Access and log-in information will be provided upon acceptance into the course. Seminar requirements include timely participation in the web forum (including 150-word film and website reviews), active participation in each discussion session, creation of a lesson plan to incorporate part of what is covered in the course into your own course and a short essay reflecting on how the seminar affected your thinking or teaching about China and the world.
