#ADPTDC13: Global Challenges Pre-Conference Workshop
Thursday, June 6, 2013 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Global Challenges Workshop: Educating Globally Competent Citizens & Working Lunch
Open to all; $65 registration fee to cover cost of lunch
This full-day workshop introduces participants to numerous tools for educating globally competent citizens. AASCU Global Engagement Scholars describe how they have built interdisciplinary courses and curricula around the Global Challenges framework (population, resources, technology, information, economic integration, conflict/security, and governance). Workshop leaders demonstrate the teaching materials and resources they have found most valuable in the courses they teach (including introductory, first-year, discipline-based, and honors courses) and guide participants in anticipating how these same tools could be used effectively on their home campuses.
Participants also have the opportunity to learn more about how to bring the national Global Challenges blended-learning course to their campuses. The blended-learning-model course, designed by the AASCU Scholars, includes a variety of teaching methods to deliver and facilitate classroom materials and activities.
Participants will also be introduced to the new Global Challenges eBook written by the AASCU Scholars and published by Sourcebooks. Each participant will receive a faculty toolkit for using the global challenges content in campus courses and co-curricular programs. This practical and insightful workshop is ideal for institutions at want to deepen their commitment to providing effective international education in a variety of disciplines.
Lunch will be served. Registration fee: $65
