Creating a Global Media Center Workshop
This day and half workshop surveys emerging technologies and media content used to bring the world to North Carolina’s schools. The program is designed to help K-12 school librarians and technology facilitators better understand our interconnected world by learning with and through technology. The workshop also offers resources and hands-on strategies to increase and improve content, collection, and integration of global themes in the library.
Globalizing the Community College Curriculum Workshop
This day long workshop is organized around discipline-based teams of North Carolina community college instructors working to create international modules for targeted courses. Faculty from across North Carolina present on major global issues and their relevance to community college education. Teams engage with instructional designers, university faculty, library specialists, and NRC representatives on integrating relevant global topics into their targeted courses.
In addition to annual region-focused seminars, World View works with the university’s resource centers to offer small 20-30 person workshops focused on region or global issue. Past workshops have included European Union and the Euro, sponsored by the European Union Center of Excellence and South Asia in the 21st Century, sponsored by the NC Consortium for South Asian Studies.
