Program Summary & Location

This faculty-led program builds on a collaboration with Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru (PUCP), where UWEC teacher education students will learn about a curricular model that integrates authentic, innovative, culturally diverse, intercultural, global learning experiences in the fabric of a transformative K-12 education program. Group in classroomThis is done through service learning as a teacher aid, ethnographic observation, interviews, critical reflection, and narrative inquiry. Students will also be learning about the effectiveness of a set of critical, globally minded pedagogical strategies that secure the integration of what it means to live in a diverse world.  The challenge will be translating increased awareness about race, culture, intercultural relations, language difference, power and identity into effective teaching practices conducive to the development of individual global competencies and institutional global capacities. 

The program is based in Lima, Peru, at the PUCP campus. UWEC participants will be led by Dr. Torres in guided sessions to deconstruct cultural, intercultural and countercultural expressions during visits to a selection of museums in Lima, Lambayeque and surrounding areas (Archaeology and Anthropology Museum, Gold Museum, Larco Museum, Museum at Saint Francis Convent, Museum at the Cathedral of Lima, Museum at Pachacamac archeological site, Museum at Paracas archaeological site, Museum of Memory and Oblivion, Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum, Brunning Museum).
