Abstract

This teaching module project is designed to cultivate and strengthen global competencies of first year undergraduate students in WPI's Great Problem Seminar, "Food Sustainability," by integrating China material into course content. Through studying the food security landscape in China, students necessarily engage the Chinese cultural and socio-political context. This in turn, provides an alternate lens to the Western experience and highlights strengths and weaknesses in both.
