SED ED 214 Educating Global Citizens: Learn and act. Explore conflict resolution by studying current global events and teaching Boston-area high school students the “experiential education” approach to successful mediation. As a final project, small groups author new, original geo-political case studies they employ in high school classrooms, gaining an in-depth understanding of how to teach the origins, potential consequences and solutions to global issues facing us today.
SED IE 603 Project Analysis and Planning for Urban Educational Development: The course is designed as a workshop in which students learn a set of planning techniques and apply these techniques in the design of real projects or programs of their own choosing. Emphasis is on showing how a proposed development project can be expected to contribute, at some level, to the resolution of an important social problem and designing a persuasive project proposal.
