"Modern Andean Points of View: The Andes and Their People"

 

AGENDA

Course description
Teaching about diversity requires imagining a different type of world. We believe that the Andesprovides a good overview of this type of world,with its imperfections and its incredible achievements.


In this workshop we offer a cohesive view of an important region in the Latin American cultural landscape: the Andes and their people. By learning about the ancestral and current views and practices of the Andean people, educators will be able to see how cultural diversity is the result of careful balance between community needs and careful use of natural and cultural resources.


This workshop will cover these basic topics:
(i) The linguistic diversity of the Andean region (including its interaction with Spanish);
(ii) the syncretism its culture offers between modern and Pre(Pre---Columbian beliefs;
(iii) the social organization of indigenous people and the notions of solidarity and extended family as community;
(iv) the solutions that Andean people offer to problems like climate change and the risks of uncontrolled economic growth. We will also provide suggestions and models for class prepa-rations, particularly for those in bilingual programs.

 

Professional Development Workshop directed to K-12l and Community College Educators, and Librarians. Illinois K-12 educators are elegible to receive ISBE Professional Development Hours (PDH). Others are elegible to receive General University Continuing Education units (CEU).

 

Housing: University Dorms can be provided only to out of town participants at no extra cost (double occupancy only).
