Disparities in water, food, health and migration: all of these play a very important role in Africa historically and today. But how do we teach these sensitive global issues while reflecting a balanced view of Africa? This institute is designed to help educators better integrate Africa into their curriculum in culturally appropriate ways and to give current educators an opportunity to share and learn from each other how to 'teach Africa.'
