Global Learning (GLB) Course Attribute
Global learning is an essential part of a well-rounded education and is becoming exceedingly important in our globalized world and economy. To encourage the inclusion of global learning in all programs and disciplines, Weber State has many courses that have global learning as part of their learning outcomes.
- Students will become informed, open-minded, and responsible people who are attentive to diversity across the spectrum of differences.
- Students will seek to understand how their actions affect both local and global communities.
- Students will address the world's most pressing and enduring issues collaboratively and equitably.
In the application form, there are four questions you will need to answer:
- Explain how you include in your course design at least one of the following: a) global knowledge b) global skills and/or c) global attitudes. Please note that you will need to demonstrate that your course content directly relates to global learning and this should be reflected on the syllabus you attach.
- The syllabus must include a minimum of two global learning-related outcomes. Please list these outcomes here.
- Please provide the pedagogical strategies you will employ to achieve the global learning outcomes.
- Provide a clear indication of how the global learning outcomes will be assessed.
You are welcome to contact Faculty in Residence Dr. Stephanie Wolfe (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule a quick meeting at your convenience to brainstorm global learning related ideas or to ask questions.
New courses need to go through the regular college and university curriculum process for approval as courses, prior to or while simultaneously seeking the GLB attribution.
Global Learning is "a critical analysis of and an engagement with complex, interdependent global systems and legacies (such as natural, physical, social, cultural, economic, and political) and their implications for people's lives and the earth's sustainability."Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U)
