Announcing a New Course in Education


ED 013: 
The Global Educator: Education in Post-Colonial Africa
 
In this course, students will experience an interdisciplinary approach to learning about the challenges faced by the developing world in creating an educational system that supports the conditions for a good quality of life.

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.

This course will encourage students to re-shape their notions of what education means in both the developing world and in their own communities.

This course will introduce students to committed educators and activists whose work creating the Maranyundo School for Girls in Nyamata Rwanda serves as a narrative for the course.

Fulfills a course requirement for the Education Minor.

Spring 2017: Monday and Wednesday from 9:00 - 10:15 am
