This May, join Dr. William Gaudelli, Professor of Social Studies Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, for an online professional development using the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, 2015-2030. 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.

In the hybrid track, participants will attend 3 synchronous sessions with Dr. Gaudelli to discuss the background of the SDGs as well as issues and challenges with the goals. These conversations will prompt educators to consider how to engage the goals with students. Participants will also read scholarship on the goals and interact with colleagues through discussion boards asynchronously. By the end of the professional development, participants will create a teaching toolkit for the SDGs in groups. This professional development should involve 20 hours of participants’ time in total.
