UNC World View’s annual community college program on November 5-6 will have a unique feel this academic year because of the enhanced relevance of the global health topic. While educators all over remain hopeful for the future, the fact remains that the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to disrupt normal operations at community colleges while illuminating our interconnectedness with other parts of the world. With that in mind, we at UNC World View are pleased to collaborate with stakeholders at community colleges and in the field of global health to share resources with educators as they reimagine teaching and learning during this unprecedented time.
Part I of the program will feature presentations on global health topics, including pandemics and ethics, health literacy, health disparities, globalizing the curriculum and supporting critical need allied health programs at community colleges. Also included in Part I is a panel discussion exploring topics such as technology, empathy and equity while highlighting the importance of hospitals, industry and community colleges working together to meet the needs of students during this unique time.
Part II of the program will feature an intercultural competence training framed in the story circles methodology. This segment will demonstrate to community college educators how to facilitate meaningful dialogue with little to no resources or formal background in intercultural competency training.
With educators from over 16 community colleges in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida scheduled to attend this program, we at UNC World View are looking forward to the global health and intercultural competency resources that will be shared on November 5-6, 2020.
