Internationalize Your Curriculum at Home

A Message from Robyn Brighton, Director, Curriculum Initiatives, and Shara Lee, Campus Director, Faculty and Instructional Development

International education is a comprehensive approach to students’ academic plans that intentionally prepares them to be active and engaged participants in a multicultural, interconnected world through internationalization of the campus and curriculum.

Professor of Speech Tina Tan and Librarian Beth King will offer “Internationalizing the Curriculum at Home: Creating Global Citizens Locally” beginning Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at the West Campus. This course is designed to provide faculty members with the knowledge and resources to internationalize their courses through the development of a course internationalization toolkit. Faculty will have the opportunity to work along-side a mentor directly following the conclusion of the professional development course to assist them with the implementation of their toolkit into one or more of their classes throughout the 2018-2019 academic year. In doing so, faculty will earn a one-time stipend of $250 following the term of implementation.

Successful completion of this course will enable participants to add a global learning designation to their courses. To assist more students with earning global learning designation on their transcripts, the Office of Curriculum Initiatives is seeking faculty teaching general education courses from the Communications, Mathematics and Science divisions.
