What if the sea level rises? Exploring language and culture in a future setting online course
During May 2019 we ran another FREE online course titled What if the sea level rises? Exploring language and culture in a future setting. This course is now freely open for anyone to access.
Visit the What if the sea level rises? Exploring language and culture in a future setting course page for further details and to participate.
It is a free, interactive and participatory online course which focuses on curriculum opportunities arising from our themes:
- Exploring problems that need to be solved within our lifetimes: preparing for a different future.
- How are we going to be able to live and work if the sea level rises and whole areas are flooded?
- What if the boundaries of geography and language dissolve around the world?
During the course, we suggest activities and ideas and encourage you to try them within your teaching.
After you have put into practice your chosen ideas, you can then share your experiences and swap tips and advice with other teachers and practitioners within our active MeWe community
This course follows on from our successful two previous MOOCs, which are both still open if you wish to view the content – STEM to STEAM online course held in 2018 and the Technology Outdoors online course held in 2017.
