Go Somewhere: How Faculty-led Travel Builds Better Teachers and Students
September 20, 2018 12:30 to 1:30 SUB 233
Lunch served beginning at 12:15.
Presenters: Ann Ewbank, Education; Joyce Herbeck, Education; Wendy Morrison, Health & Human Development; David Parker, Political Science. Students who have participated in a travel abroad experience will also join us.
Join us for a workshop on how globalizing your curriculum helps make you a better instructor and builds deeper connections with students. We’ll explore the benefits of international learning and give tips on how to begin the process of designing your own international learning experience. All presenters are experienced study-abroad class leaders and will share their experiences. Additionally, Joyce Herbeck will share the results of an assessment survey with her study-abroad students from numerous classes.
Participants interested in more in-depth information will have the opportunity to sign-up for an ongoing faculty learning community that will examine topics such as the nuts and bolts of the process and immersion and personalization techniques.
Use active learning pedagogies to support and advance higher level (deeper) and more engaged learning.
Create learning experiences that engage and prepare students with relevant, authentic, and meaningful activities.
