This week from the Teaching and Learning Collaborative: Internationalizing higher education has become a top priority world-wide (Gould, 2017). “Today’s college students must become adept both at interacting, cooperating, and engaging with individuals from diverse backgrounds and at grappling successfully with the kinds of unscripted problems and challenges that characterize life and work in the complex world they will enter upon graduation” (Whitehead, 2015). Expert Dawn Whitehead has spent decades developing integrative global opportunities as well as local experiences that promote intercultural learning. In her article, “Why Global Learning Cannot Wait,” Whitehead shares about the importance of global awareness and engagement. The Models of Global Learning link in this article provides specific ideas on how institutions have proceeded with developing and revising curricula to reflect global integration.
On January 30, Dawn Whitehead will visit the UP campus to share more ideas with us. Please use this link so find more details and join the conversation. For more information contact Kimberly Ilosvay, education, at email@example.com.
