The National Consortium for Teaching About Asia and Asia for Educators have launched a new “Top Ten” video series which begins with 7 programs on the Top Ten Things to Know about East Asia in the 21st Century. The video series is an efficient way to gain essential information about this most important world area directly from area experts at Columbia University. Each program runs 40 to 60 minutes and delivers content and context on East Asia today. Once a video is released it stays active on the website – so you can view on your own time. View one program or the entire series and deepen your understanding of current world events while also accessing new classroom material. More information is available here.
