Teaching and Educational Resources
Explore teaching and educational resources through CAORC’s Flip page. This page features teaching modules, webinars, lesson plans, and more from alumni across the different CAORC funding programs, including the Overseas Faculty Development Seminars, CAORC Research Fellowships, and Responsive Preservation Initiative. These resources were designed to support educators in teaching about other countries, world regions, and international social, cultural, and political issues.
Since 2017, CAORC has offered fully funded overseas seminars that help community college and minority-serving institution faculty, and administrators gain international experience to develop and improve international courses, curricula, and teaching materials at their institutions. Many of the former participants have developed open access educational resources as a result of their experience with the seminar.
Additionally, CAORC research fellows and grantees from the Multi-Country Research Fellowship, CAORC-NEH Research Fellowship, Mellon Mediterranean Regional Research Fellowship, and Kaplan Responsive Preservation Initiative have developed resources.
Note that new resources will continue to be added to CAORC’s Flip page so please check back regularly for additional materials.
Tips for Using CAORC’s Teaching Resources Page
When you reach our page, you might see a pop-up message that encourages you to sign up for Flip. You don't need to sign up as our Partners page is open to everyone, with or without an account. Simply click the 'X' to remove the pop-up and continue to view and explore our Partners page!
Scroll down to view our topics. If you’re looking for a specific type of resource there are a few ways to filter them. One way is to search using the ‘Subject’ bar, shown in the photo, and choose from the drop-down menu.
In this example we have chosen the ‘Social Studies/Social Sciences’ subject and it shows that our page has 8 topics under that subject at the time of this photo.
There’s also a ‘Search’ bar feature where you can type in any number of keywords to help you find what you’re looking for.
For example you could search ‘Activity’ to find all the resources that are listed as an activity. You can also use the search feature to find a specific region, like The Middle East, or even specific countries. In this example, we searched for India and found 12 topics with that keyword.
If you would like to view a resource, click the title. You’ll be able to view a short description of the resource, some background information on the fellow who created their resource, the necessary attachments, tips on how to use this topic in your classroom, and more!
If you are an educator on Flip who uses one of these resources in your classroom, we’ve included an ‘Educators Prompt’ at the bottom of the resource description and an attachment of questions for you to respond to. If you do not have a Flip account, you also have the option to respond to questions in the ‘Educators Prompt’ attachment and send it via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Educators Prompt Response’.
For questions or comments, please email email@example.com.
