Sophomores – Sign up NOW for Global Citizens Online

18 Nov
  • Interested in striking the right balance (for you) between privacy and convenience in regard to online tools?
  • Curious about options for developing an online identity that highlights what you’d most like others, like college admissions officers, to notice about you and your talents?
  • Wondering how you might leverage online tools for social good, such as building awareness or coalitions across local, national, or international communities?

Enroll in Global Citizens Online (GCO) 2014-15, a program in which you’ll explore these topics (and more) with a small group of fellow MLWGS sophomores.

  • Where does it happen? ONLINE
    • Read articles and/or watch videos online – sources that intentionally present contrasting perspectives on issues – that will serve as sparks for discussion
    • Participate in lively small group discussions via itslearning
  • When does it happen? On your own schedule over seven weeks, about one hour per week.
  • What does it cover?
    • Personality and Presence (i.e. who – and where – are you online?)
      • Dec. 8 through 19, 2014
      • Winter break (with optional challenge activity)
    • Privacy and Power
      • Jan. 5 through 16, 2015
      • Two-week break for first semester exams
    • Connections and Intention
      • Feb. 2 through 20, 2015
      • Our last week culminates with participants sharing their personal strategic plans (no more than two pages long) regarding their online identity

Interested in bringing GCO topics home to discuss with your family? There will be six optional dinner table conversation topics provided for the first six weeks of the program.

What will I learn?  In the words of students who participated in the spring 2014 GCO pilot…
