Beginning Fall 2017, the Social Science and Human Services Department at Parkland College began it's first full year of a project to improve the pedagogical materials offered in their core courses regarding global issues, drawing from scholarship on the European Union, as well as Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
This project is has been funded by the Center for Global Studies, the European Union Center , and the Russian, East European and Eurasian Center at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champagin with Title IV funds. A portion of the funds were used to purchase new course materials, facilitated by the Parkland College Library. The resulting collection can be viewed at https://library.parkland.edu/c.php?g=752112.During the Fall 2017 semester, participating faculty members enrolled in EDU 931: Instructional Design, offered by Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, which provided faculty with resources for designing new content and discovering new material. Modified courses in Anthropology, Criminal Jusice, Geography, History, Psychology, and Sociology were delivered to students for the Spring 2018 semester.
