ED 013: 

The Global Educator: Education in Post-Colonial Africa

In this course, students will experience an interdisciplinary approach to learning about the education challenges faced by nations around the world that are emerging from their colonial histories.

The course asks students to consider definitions of race and ethnicity and how they shape the ways the world understands the educational needs of nations emerging as economic powers.

The instructor will use her work with committed educators and activists to establish the Maranyundo School for Girls in Nyamata Rwanda a narrative and case study for the course.

In this course, students will be asked to consider the role of philanthropy in assisting educational initiatives and the importance of forming partnerships without replicating a new form of colonialism.

Spring 2018: Monday and Wednesday from 9:00 - 10:15 am
