In our ever-connected world, it's no longer a choice but a necessity for educators to embrace international perspectives in their teaching. Whether grappling with a pandemic, economic shifts, political complexities, or military conflicts, the challenges we face are inherently global. It's our responsibility as educators to not only help students understand these issues but also equip them with the skills to collaborate across diverse backgrounds to find solutions.
You don't need to send your students abroad to cultivate a global mindset. Curriculum internationalization is a powerful tool that can be integrated into any course, across all disciplines. This workshop is your gateway to designing or redesigning your course with a globally engaged approach. Discover strategies to infuse global dimensions into your curriculum, enhancing your students' ability to navigate the interconnected world.
This cohort-based pilot program will help instructors to create globalized/internationalized courses. From assessing students' readiness for global content to creating engaging opportunities for both international and domestic learners, this workshop will provide you with ideas to cultivate an inclusive and globally conscious learning environment. Participants will submit their deliverable throughout the program and receive feedback from the faculty mentor and a facilitator from the Center for Integrated Professional Development, so they can improve their course designs based on the feedback. This workshop is intended for tenure-track, non-tenure, and staff with teaching responsibilities.
This program consists of 6-hour synchronous learning (three 2-hour sessions, tentative dates below) and asynchronous learning (approximately 3-4 hours/module, up to 16 hours in total). Additionally, you’ll need time to complete deliverables (3 deliverables).
For successful completion of the program, participants will
$1,500 upon the successful completion of the program for eligible participants. The stipends will be paid by the Office of International Engagement.
