Fall 2009 International Learning Workshop –
Participants of this full day workshop will design a new course or redesign an existing course or so that it becomes international in scope. Using the backward course design method, participants will spend collaborative time working with colleagues to identify specific international learning outcomes for their course and create integrative learning experiences for the students. The learning experiences will be intentionally aligned with the work students accomplish as they work toward achieving the course objectives both within and outside of the classroom.
Please note, this will be an intensive course development workshop requiring a full-day commitment from all participants. Co-facilitators, George Rehrey, IUB Campus Instructional Consulting, and Hilary E. Kahn, Center for the Study of Global Change, ask participants to bring a syllabus for a course they wish to revise or specific ideas for developing a new course.
By the end of the day participants will have drafted a syllabus for a course that is international or global in scope and will leave the workshop with readings, supplementary materials, and the skills to further internationalize other courses.
