Faculty Application: Global Engagement Summer Institute


As part of UNCG’s Quality Enhancement Plan on Global Engagement, a summer institute for faculty development will be offered through the University Teaching and Learning Commons May 13-15, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, including lunch.

The purpose of the institute is to provide professional development opportunities for selected faculty to build new knowledge about intercultural-global topics; to develop coursework or teaching applications for use in delivering global engagement student learning outcomes; and to build campus participation through faculty sharing of expertise. Over the course of three days, participants will focus on enhancing their own level of expertise regarding the global learning competencies that characterize the QEP:

Competency 1: Knowledge of contemporary issues within a global framework.

Competency 2: Knowledge of diverse ethical and value dimensions of issues in a global framework.

Competency 3: Fostering an open attitude to engaging diverse cultural situations.

Competency 4: Fostering the ability to engage in culturally appropriate ways in international, intercultural, and/or multicultural contexts.

In addition to speakers, activities, and panels, the heart of the experience will be project based. All participants will work with a facilitator and other group members each afternoon to develop a course, or redesign a course, or create a teaching application that supports the delivery of the global learning competencies using QEP student learning outcomes.

Please fill out the application below by April 1, 2015.
