The authors of this book, all of whom are from one of the nationaEURO™s largest and most diverse research universities, provide such a model and, in doing so, offer readers a broad definition of global learning that both encompasses a wide variety of modes and experiencesaEURO"in-person, online, and in co-curricular activities at home and abroadaEURO"and engages all students on campus. They provide a replicable set of strategies that embed global learning throughout the curriculum and facilitate high quality, high-impact global learning for all students.
The approach this book describes is based upon three principles: that global learning is a process to be experienced, not a thing to be produced; that it requires all studentsaEURO™ participationaEURO"particularly the underrepresentedaEURO"and cannot succeed if reserved for a select few; and that global learning involves more than mastery of a particular body of knowledge.
The authors conceptualize global learning as the process of diverse people collaboratively analyzing and addressing complex problems that transcend borders of all kinds. They demonstrate how institutions can enable all students to determine relationships among diverse perspectives on problems and develop equitable, sustainable solutions for the worldaEURO™s interconnected human and natural communities. WhataEURO™s more, they describe how a leadership processaEURO"collective impactaEURO"can enable all stakeholders across departments and disciplines to align and integrate universal global learning throughout the institution and achieve the aims of inclusive excellence.
Providing examples of practice, this book:Offers a model to make global learning universalProvides a definition of global learning that incorporates diversity, collaboration, and problem solving as essential componentsDescribes effective leadership for implementation, consistent with the attributes of global learningIllustrates integrative, high-impact global learning strategies within the access pipeline, studentsaEURO™ coursework, and co-curricular activitiesOffers practical strategies for global learning professional development, student learning assessment, and program evaluationPromotes inclusive excellence through universal global learning

[This book] records a remarkable institutional venture, provides extraordinary vision, and bolsters the reluctant to not hold back. The authors offer contemporary theories that undergird this new conception of global learning, the engagement with diversity as foundational, the nuts and bolts of how they proceeded and where they stumbled, the strategies that involved 1200 faculty in 97 different professional development opportunities, and the leadership and infrastructure that have been critical to sustaining momentum. This book has redrawn the map for global learning. The authors not only recognize that the world is not flat, but they reveal that it can be seen, understood, experienced, and engaged with right here on American soil."--Caryn McTighe Musil, Senior Scholar and Director of Civic Learning and Democracy Initiatives"AAC&U" (10/06/2017)
