Introduction to World101
Understand how the world works—the issues, the forces, the actors, and how they interact to affect people's everyday lives.
The goal of World101 is to make international relations and foreign policy compelling and accessible through instruction on how the world works and how international events and issues influence us all. Each module provides an overview of the topic and historical background for context, and explores implications for today's world. Using entertaining and interactive storytelling techniques, World101 provides an immersive learning experience for a variety of settings—classrooms, training programs, workplaces, and homes.
Teaching with World101
Each module covers a fundamental topic in international relations or foreign policy and is accompanied by a full suite of teaching resources, such as essay questions, classroom activities, glossary terms, and an annotated bibliography. The modules will be rolled out in themed units until the full World101 course, which will comprise over fifty modules, is complete. Until then, each module can be used as a standalone primer on a topic or issue, or can be assigned in any combination. Module assets including maps, videos, and timelines, can be used individually to supplement lesson plans or syllabi.
Global Era, the first unit, will be comprised of modules on globalization, terrorism, climate change, proliferation, migration and refugees, cybersecurity, the global economy, and public health. Explore these modules on the World101 website.
