About the Course

Welcome to this course! Together we will explore how to build global competency and dialogue by using films. Throughout the course, you will engage in different activities including reflecting in the forum on current practices, goals, and aspirations. We will explore ways to use film to create social emotional learning opportunities and self-reflection, as well as to facilitate dialogue around the student experience of documentary film. In addition, we will develop methods for investigating film background and exploring essential questions. And finally, we will explore ways that film can inspire positive social change through action, advocacy and awareness. This learning experience will guide you to create and share a lesson plan and get feedback from your peers. You will also have an opportunity to share your experiences teaching your lesson in a short reflection paper.  


Along with the following five sessions, three live sessions with the instructor will be made for the course participants!
