Making Global Learning Universal : Promoting Inclusion and Success for All Students Paperback / softback
While there is wide consensus in higher education that global learning is essential for all studentsaEURO (TM) success, there are few models of how to achieve this goal. The authors of this book, all of whom are from one of the nationaEURO (TM)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 (TM) 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 (TM)s interconnected human and natural communities. WhataEURO (TM)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 (TM) coursework, and co-curricular activitiesOffers practical strategies for global learning professional development, student learning assessment, and program evaluationPromotes inclusive excellence through universal global learning
