The Resurgence of Great Power Politics
Join the Stanford Global Studies (SGS) and the Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET) for a professional learning workshops that offer teachers the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of key topics of historical and contemporary global relevance and to hone their pedagogical expertise in collaboration with leading Stanford scholars. All institutes during the 2020-2021 academic year will be offered virtually. This shift, which ensures the safety of our scholars, staff, and participants, also affords participants two exciting opportunities: to engage with nationally and internationally renowned scholars and to participate in high quality distance learning with all program design decisions intended to model what also can be done with students.
Please note that with our move to the virtual space we have changed our typical institute structure from three full days of synchronous learning to three half days, moving the extra learning to asynchronous assignments. In this way we will still be able to provide a rich arc of learning as well as two continuing education units while minimizing Zoom fatigue. We have built all assignments with specific intention knowing that they will serve as meaningful onramps to and between the real-time learning sessions.
Recent years have seen a revival of great power politics with states shifting from more of a cooperative stance to an increasingly competitive posture. Internally this has been accompanied by a rise in nationalism and a shift towards autocracy. This dynamic harkens back to a century ago when Great Power competition culminated in the outbreak of the First World War. This workshop will examine current relations between states in various hotspots around the globe and contextualize them in light of their historical roots and contemporary dynamics. It also will consider the implications of this revived interstate competition for universal ideals and movements like human rights.
Pedagogical Focus: Formative Assessment
In this workshop, participants will learn how to infuse opportunities for discipline specific formative assessment in the virtual and in-person learning space both during and between lessons.
