Cultivating Global Learning through Course Curricula
The Global Affairs Curriculum Internationalization program is an opportunity for UC Davis faculty members interested in collaborating with other educators to make their course content, teaching techniques, and student experiences responsive to current global challenges and opportunities.
About the Program
Meeting the challenges and seizing the opportunities presented by our increasingly interdependent world requires a citizenry and workforce able to understand current events and their profession in a global context. It also requires the ability to collaborate, communicate, and cooperate across national, geographic, cultural and cognitive boundaries and develop equitable, sustainable solutions for the world’s human and natural communities.
As such, Global Affairs is offering a professional learning opportunity for faculty to develop and promote global learning frameworks and practices, grounded in theory and with measurable outcomes.
Call for Applications
Global Affairs seeks faculty members interested in participating in the Curriculum Internationalization program during the 2018-19 academic year. We encourage Academic Senate and Academic Federation faculty members with full-time appointments in 2018-19 from all UC Davis schools and colleges to apply by May 30, 2018.
The selected group will meet twice a quarter during the fall, winter, and spring quarters to explore avenues for globalizing the student experience. Participants have the opportunity to:
- Develop global learning outcomes and assessments for any course, regardless of subject matter
- Infuse courses with interactive learning strategies and global content
- Explore how to incorporate international students in the classroom in a holistic, globally-oriented way
- Apply diverse perspectives to course materials
- Learn how technology can be employed to internationalize the curriculum
- Investigate how to maximize student learning in study abroad and study away contexts
- Review examples of curriculum internationalization across all disciplines
Please note: it remains the responsibility of individual faculty members to ensure that any changes to course curricula are approved through appropriate academic and administrative channels.
Program Application Details
Participants commit to a series of six meetings, each approximately four hours long, between September 2018 and May 2019. Since this is a learning community, participants are expected to prepare for and engage actively in every session.
UC Davis Academic Senate and Academic Federation faculty members with full-time appointments in 2018-19 are eligible to apply. All UC Davis locations are eligible.
Faculty members who complete the program will receive a one-time stipend from Global Affairs of $1,000.
Be sure to apply online by May 30, 2018.
