Faculty Development Day: Global Citizenship (with Ashley Byun McKay on student conservation travel to the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest, Winston Tellis on students experiencing service learning in Bridgeport, and Edna Wilson on study abroad)
Friday, May 7, 2010
12:30 PM - 3:15 PM
Library Multimedia room
This Faculty Development Day will focus upon Global Citizenship, as a means of highlighting the “Global Citizenship” institutional focus for the 2010-2011 academic year. Since this is the topic of institutional commitment, a clarification and examination of opportunities for multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations will help set a direction for faculty to integrate this theme into the curriculum and individual courses. As part of this Development Day, individual faculty members will make presentations on how they currently implement, or plan to implement, the learning goals of Global Citizenship in their courses. Plenary sessions will address the basics of global citizenship as they apply to the University as a whole. In breakout sessions faculty presenters will (1) identify specific Global Citizenship learning goals in their courses, and (2) demonstrate specific assignments or class activities connected to these learning goals (e.g., research/essay assignment; community-based learning; experiential learning; case-studies).
