GLOBAL LEARNING CURRICULUM DESIGNS FOR ACADEMIC DEPARTMENTS

A number of academic departments have been involved in the Global Learning Initiative, seeking ways to adopt the principles of this project into their respective curricula. Teams from each of these departments engaged in the initial work of addressing three fundamental tasks:

  • Develop global learning outcomes for majors in their own departments
  • Develop curricular and co-curricular strategies to help students achieve these global learning outcomes
  • Develop assessment approaches to establish that students are in fact achieving the global learning outcomes
The faculty teams were supported through workshops and faculty with expertise associated with the three themes of global learning (sustainability, diversity and global engagement) were made available to assist them. Reports developed by these teams were then presented to faculty colleagues in their respective departments who had an opportunity to review, discuss, make changes as deemed necessary and then vote to adopt these commitments to global learning. The following are the reports prepared and adopted by these departments/programs:
