United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, 2015-2030

This May, join Dr. William Gaudelli, Professor and Dean of the College of Education at Lehigh University for 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. 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.

This is a non-credit, continuing education hybrid (asynchronous/synchronous) online course that is offered jointly between Lehigh University's College of Education and Teachers College, Columbia University
