What are World View to You! Remote Learning Modules?

In the spring of 2020 World View developed several professional development opportunities for K-12 and community college educators to advance global education strategies and resources during challenging times. There are many benefits to this format.

  • Modules provide small doses of learning, done when it is convenient for YOU.

  • Minimal technology is required. A computer or device with Internet capability is necessary and in some modules you must be able to watch and listen to internet-based videos.

  • You can also CHOOSE your own pathway. World View provides content and you choose your path from the choices. Modules can be completed in ANY order!

  • Each module has a concentrated learning objective, an exploration of focused strategy or resource and requires reflection on impact or integration into your own instruction.

  • Each module has an estimated amount of time needed to complete assignments, either one, two or three hours. Choose any combination and after ten hours of assignments are completed thoroughly and turned into World View, you will be offered 1.0 Continuing Education Units. Turn assignments in one at a time or all together!

  • Can’t finish a module in one sitting? No problem, just save your work and get back to it when you are able.

  • World View will keep track of what modules you have turned in to us and how many contact hours you have accumulated. From the date of registration you will have one month to complete ten hours.

  • Limited remote learning module scholarships available for individual educators or teams of four or more educators from the same school. Please contact Julie Kinnaird (kinnaird@unc.edu) if you are interested.
