Hotel Deadline Monday 10/6 for 2015 Global Challenges Faculty Institute
Thursday & Friday, November 6 – 7, 2014
Global Challenges Institute on Educating Globally Competent Citizens
The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey · Galloway, NJ
This two-day institute introduces participants to numerous tools for educating globally competent citizens. Global Engagement Scholars (faculty members) from 11 AASCU campuses describe how they have built courses and curricula around the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ 7 Revolutions framework to address seven Global Challenges: population, resources, technology, information, economies, conflict and governance. Institute 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.
Each Institute participant will receive a faculty toolkit for using the global challenges content in campus courses and programs. This practical and insightful Institute is ideal for colleges and universities that want to deepen their commitment to providing effective international education in a variety of disciplines. That’s why AASCU is excited to provide reduced registration fees for campus teams. While individuals are certainly welcome, campus teams of three to five may find the Institute most instructive
