Globalizing the Curriculum Summer Institute (in process)

Introduction

In this two-day institute, we will work together to explore knowledge and strategies to enhance students’ global awareness in our individual courses. 

We aim to:

  1. Developing the “Academic Self” of globalizing the curriculum 
    • Identify our current teaching assumptions about global learning
    • Explore new perspectives of thinking about how we teach a globalized course 
  2. Identifying five dynamic elements of globalizing the curriculum
    • Identify and integrate Purposes, Programs, Outcomes, Approaches, and Projects in globalizing the curriculum
    • Share and expand teaching strategies of global learning 
  3. Developing shared resources of globalizing the curriculum 
    • Create materials for individual courses in various disciplines, including topics, activities, and assessment
    • Collect useful resources of globalizing the curriculum, including websites and tools
