EDUC 000/2011 - Education and Society (3 cr.)



Description
An introduction to a sustained inquiry into the social, cultural, historical and contemporary dynamics of education in the 21st century. Students will explore how formal and informal education relate to local, regional, and global trends. Using a model that employs disciplines from the humanities, social sciences, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics), students will examine, critique, and explain education in light of its origins, major influences, and consequences. Students will have the opportunity through readings to explore not only the social science focus of what actually happens in education, but also the cultural studies focus of the meaning people give to education. Students will explore potential solutions for relevant local and global educational issues.
