ANNOUNCEMENT: New 2013 Keynote Speaker; Only 10 Spots Remain
Due to circumstances beyond our control, David Grinspoon, who we had originally announced as our second keynote speaker will no longer attend the event. Instead the American Democracy Project is pleased to share with you that Chris Mooney will be joining us for the Institute.
Chris Mooney, a correspondent for Mother Jones, is a science and political journalist, blogger, podcaster, experienced trainer of scientists in the art of communication, and the host of Climate Desk Live. He is the author of four books, including the New York Times bestselling The Republican War on Science.
Currently, there are only 10 spots left for this two-day institute, which introduces participants to numerous tools for educating globally competent citizens. Global Engagement Scholars (faculty members) from 11 AASCU campuses describe how they have built courses and curricula around the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ 7 Revolutions Framework (population, resources, technology, information, economic integration, conflict/security and governance). Institute leaders demonstrate the teaching materials and resources they have found most valuable in the courses they teach (including introductory, first-year, discipline-based and honors courses) and guide participants in anticipating how these same tools could be used effectively on their home campuses.
