In addition to having been the QEP for the last ten years, Global Learning is also one of the High-Impact Practices. Study abroad is usually an intensive way of promoting global learning, but you do not have to send your students abroad to promote global understanding. In collaboration with the Division of Global Affairs, this workshop will unpack global learning as a pedagogy to understand why it is so powerful, what it can do for your students, and how you can incorporate it in your courses and/or get involved with the DGA programs and initiatives.

"One cannot expect positive results from an educational . . . program which fails to respect the particular view of the world held by the people." Join us for a discussion of Paulo Freire's classic book, The Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and contemplate how the world view of our students influences the way they receive and perceive their education.

One of the ten “high-impact practices” is to explore “difficult differences ” such as racial, ethnic, and gender inequality, or continuing struggles for human rights, freedom, and power. This exploration is crucial in today’s multicultural society, but while this pedagogy has empirically documented impact in the classroom and can push students to develop critical thinking skills, it can also backfire if the exploration is not effectively structured. In this workshop, we will share tools and techniques for holding space for difficult dialogues, from establishing ground rules upfront to leading discussions of controversial topics, to dealing with emotional outbursts in the classroom.

In an increasingly noisy world, “There are many reasons why bringing silence into university classrooms might be a smart move,” according to Helen Lees (2013). Research on silence as a pedagogical approach ranges from intentionally inserting pauses into the curriculum to developing more sustained approaches to silent observations or reflection. Participants will talk about how we might purposefully integrate silence to not only enhance student learning but also to challenge our assumptions about the quiet students in our classrooms. We will also ask how power dynamics are related to silence. Participants will generate strategies for integrating silence into their unique classroom environments.
