The global financial crisis has been a major factor in world politics as well as a consistent component of world news in recent years. With the world becoming more globalized, it is easy to see how one country’s economic problems can affect the global economy, but is not always easy to teach about it. In this workshop, Dr. Rotua Lumbantobing, Assistant Professor of Economics at Westminster College and scholar of Development and Applied Microeconomics, will present on the global financial crisis, using the current situation in Greece as a case study, while also addressing the impact that such catalysts have on other entities such as the Eurozone and the U.S. economy. Curricular materials and other classroom activities will be provided. This workshop is being offered for three (3) ACT 48 continuing education credits, and is being held in cooperation with the Drinko Center for Excellence at the Westminster College Model UN Conference.
This workshop was held on Monday, April 23, 2012. If you would like materials from this workshop or more information about future professional development workshops, please contact our Manager of Education Programs, Michele Cahill.
