This project brings together a small group of faculty who are interested in Global Learning in General Education. Ideally, the proposed Faculty Learning Community (FLC) will be multidisciplinary and devoted to exploring ways to incorporate global learning and intercultural competence into the general education curriculum. We will discuss the meaning of global education and its importance for students in an increasingly interconnected world, with a focus on how faculty can help provide students with needed skills.
The presenters in this workshop will share the ideas and focus of our faculty learning community: improving teacher preparation as it relates to culture, language, and learning. Resources will be shared on the following the topics: power and privilege, intersections of global and multicultural education, anti-bias curriculum, gender and sexuality, culturally relevant pedagogy, and English language learners.
