|Length of Workshop:||6 hours|
This symposium is the second in a series of Academic Symposia co-planned and co-sponsored by MDC and United Faculty of Miami Dade College. This is an opportunity to learn from two national experts: economist Dr. Dean Baker, co-director for the Center for Economic Policy and Research in Washington, DC and anthropologist Dr. Alex Stepick, 2008-2009 Fulbright Fellow, Director for the Immigration and Ethnicity Institute, Professor of Global and Socio-cultural Studies Department of European Ethnology, Florida International University and Humboldt University as they unravel globalization from an economic and ethnographic perspective. The workshop will provide a venue for the free exchange of ideas through a discussion of the dilemmas facing today’s policy-makers with regard to globalization. Faculty members will ponder and explore this thought-provoking topic of what globalization means to them as educators and will come away with the ability to apply what they have learned to the specific student learning outcome of global, cultural and historical perspectives in the classroom.
