U21 Shared Online Course (SOC) 2017 to begin in April!
The U21 SOC, “Planetary Urbanisation: Global Challenges in a Changing World”, will begin a second iteration from 3 April 2017!
By 2050 70% of the world’s population will be urban and some people argue that we are now witnessing planetary urbanization. At its simplest, this means that whether living in cities or not, most of the world’s 7 billion population are affected by processes of urbanization. This 5-week online course (time demand of 2-3 hours per week) focuses on this intensifying large-scale planetary change. Through readings, discussion, videos and other activities, U21 students will be introduced to how humans are experiencing and being challenged by this major global shift. The course is suitable for students at or above first year undergraduate level. The module may also be embedded in existing modules.
Whether you are a medic, a scientist, a social scientist, engineer or a scholar in the humanities, the questions we discuss will be relevant to the world you will work and live in!
