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



Description
Given our unique life experiences, we all have different worldviews regarding how education serves humanity and how it impacts the development of our societies. This introductory course will shed lights on the relationship between educational leadership and the sociology of education. Specifically, it will introduce you to a sustained inquiry into the social, cultural, historical and contemporary dynamics of education in the 21st century. You will (a) explore how formal and informal education relate to local, regional, and global trends; (b) examine, critique, and explain education in light of its origins, major influences, and consequences using a model that employs disciplines form the humanities, social sciences, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics); (c) create potential solutions that address local and global educational issues; and (d) construct meaning from readings about what education is and how culture influences teaching and learning.
