Global History Lab covered the span of world history from 1300 to the present. Major themes included: the history of science and health, trade and war, and migration and statelessness, and the changing human environment.
The Global History Lab made it possible to study our past in a classroom without walls, working with learners from different cultures and social backgrounds. Princeton professor Jeremy Adelman offered the Global History Lab as a combined course, including students at Princeton University, and MOOC students from 125 different countries on EdX. Thanks to a partnership with InZone at the University of Geneva, this course also integrated and actively supported groups of refugee learners in refugee camps in the Horn of Africa and Jordan. This partnerships benefited from collaboration with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Azraq and Kakuma refugee camps, CARE in Azraq refugee camp and British Council in Amman, and from financial support from Princeton University, the University of Geneva and the Ford Foundation. We express our sincere appreciation to all who contribute to the implementation of this global learning project.
