|EDUC 3333||Field Experiences in International Education|
Modern communication technologies have increasingly made the countries of the world more interdependent. This interdependency can be either positive or negative. This course seeks to provide students with a global perspective on education and society, and its impact on both culture and world affairs. This course will concentrate specifically on the educational system and customs of the host country. Lectures and class discussions, utilizing the student?s first hand experiences, will be directed toward cultural analysis of the host country with special focus on how educational systems help shape national consciousness. Students must participate in the international travel required for this course. [cross-listed with EDUC 7777].
