Pedagogical Strategies Incorporating Global Learning into the Curriculum

Posted by ctlt on May 28, 2009

Diana Cvitan, the Director of Global Learning, presented on incorporating global learning into the curriculum. Diana focused on three questions about the activities of her area: How can global learning improve the teaching and learning experience? What resources are available to faculty to help bring global learning into the classroom? What are some pedagogical strategies and methods for incorporating global learning into the curriculum?

Noting the University’s commitment to global learning, Diana reminded participants that this commitment is expressed in the University’s Mission Statement. She also noted that enhancing global learning supported the University’s interest in encouraging students to learn higher-order thinking skills, such as the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation in Bloom’s taxonomy.

Diana presented an overview of the rich array of online resources provided by the Office of Global Learning, including reference material for the Global Virtual Faculty (GVF) Program, the Global Virtual Classroom, the Global Issues Gateway (GIG), the United Nations Pathways, and resources supporting FDU’s Study Abroad program.
