Fall 2023: Teaching Current World Events
This Roundtable was dedicated to teaching current world issues and revolved around the questions:
- Why is it important to address current world issues in our classrooms?
- Regardless of our discipline, how do we provide space for students to grow as well-rounded global citizens with ethical and empathetic values?
- How can we facilitate a productive dialogue around sensitive political and geopolitical issues in our classes?
