Save the Date: Global Citizenship Program Collaboratory 2016

Feb. 5, 2016

Save the Date: GCP Collaboratory
Faculty, students, and academic partners will have the opportunity to share their thoughts on developing the core competencies for global citizenship.

As Webster University expands programs that ensure high-quality learning experiences, students and faculty are learning to engage with evidence-based instructional approaches that foster deep learning.  

The sixth annual Global Citizenship Collaboratory, May 17-18 at the Webster Groves campus, will provide a space to share and examine emerging issues surrounding orienting, teaching, assessing, supporting, and reflecting on educational practices that are becoming increasingly commonplace in our academic culture.  

Faculty, students, and academic partners who attend will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and learn more about the following topics and their relationship with developing core competencies for global citizenship: 

  • What is integrative learning in the context of global citizenship? What practices can we use for real-world applied learning?
  • What role does challenge play in deep learning? How can faculty and students manage the successes and failures of deep learning experiences?
  • How can deep learning experiences integrate learning beyond the classroom and across classrooms?
  • How can first-year classes and electives provide opportunities to transform students into self-directed and passionate learners?

Please save the date for this exciting and always rewarding event.

From Bruce Umbaugh, professor of philosophy and director of the Global Citizenship Program
