A presentation on the Sustainable Development Goals 2015-30 and how they will be affected by COVID-19
June 10, 2020
William Gaudelli, Dean of the College of Education
Taken together, the 17 comprehensive goals are full of real-world connections to prepare young people for living in a globally interconnected world. No matter your teaching background, this professional development will provide you with meaningful curriculum connections that can be found in the goals, including policy and civic dimensions for social studies, educational access with respect to teaching language and literacy, climate change and species extinction for science educators, and statistical measurements for mathematics teaching. Particular attention will be paid to the current COVID-19 crisis, specifically how the world finds itself in the current situation, what value the SDGs have for addressing the contemporary crises and future ones as well as approaches to teaching about the global pandemic.
