Social Media and Global Change: New Winter 2014 Course
BCUSP 131: Social Media and Global Change provides students with the opportunity to act locally and interact globally with university peers in another country (Egypt, Morocco or India) while learning social media and teamwork skills. Through a combination of role-playing and live interactions, students across countries will have hands-on experiences in using various forms of social media to work as a team and produce an interactive site that sustains interaction between students/activists in both countries. For more information, please visit the course description page.
