Educating Globally Competent Citizens Institute: Strategies for Teaching 7 Revolutions
April 15-16, 2010
Please save the date for the Educating Globally Competent Citizens Institute: Strategies for Teaching 7 Revolutions. This Institute will be a day and a half long, beginning at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 15th and concluding on Friday, April 15th at 4 p.m.
Participants will embark on an in-depth exploration of the 7 Revolutions with experts from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and the 7 Revolutions Scholars. In addition, each participant will receive a tool kit for folding the content of the 7 Revolutions into on-campus projects and courses. This practical and insightful two-day Institute is ideal for universities that want to deepen their commitment to providing effective international education in a variety of disciplines. The 7 Revolutions curriculum has been taught in a wide-range of courses from including First Year Experience courses, sociology, mathematics and theater.
CSIS created the 7 Revolutions to identify and analyze the key policy challenges that policymakers, business figures, and citizens will face out to the year 2025. In 2006, the American Democracy Project (ADP) partnered with CSIS to translate these 7 Revolutions into curricular and co-curricular strategies (http://www.aascu.org/programs/adp/revolutions.htm). The program identifies seven areas of change expected to be most revolutionary:
- Resource management and environmental stewardship
- Technological innovation and diffusion
- The development and dissemination of information and knowledge
- Economic integration
- The nature and mode of conflict
- The challenge of governance
Registration information will follow in early February. Please save the date and join us in Washington, D.C. as we explore strategies for educating globally competent citizens for our democracy!
