Climate change in Africa; undead monsters in Latin American mythology; and sociological perspectives on the U.S., Europe, and the E.U. are just some of the global topics that students will investigate in courses developed by UNC World View Scholar of Global Distinction community college instructors! Over the past year, instructors met with UNC World View staff, UNC librarians, and experts from the UNC global centers to research and identify resources to transform these fascinating ideas into ready-to-implement modules for their classes and for the broader community of global instructors. Each module comes with descriptions of the course and module, global learning activities, assessment guidelines, and resources for instructors and/or students to use.
The 2022-2023 Scholar of Global Distinction Curriculum Grants include modules on
- Humanities in the 20th and 21st Centuries looking at the influence of modernism and postmodernism in European and American art, film, and culture
- General Biology II looking at biodiversity and ecology in relation to food and famine in Ethiopia
