8th Annual Global Citizenship Collaboratory May 21-22
The annual Collaboratory provides space for faculty, students, and academic partners to share research, collaborate and explore.

Faculty, students, and academic partners are invited to attend the eighth annual Global Citizenship Collaboratory on Monday, May 21 and Tuesday, May 22, 2018, on the Webster Groves campus, East Academic Building.

This year’s Collaboratory theme, “Making Every Course Excellent: Developing Skills to Support Lifelong Success” invites the Webster community to consider the intersections between skills instruction, engaging technologies, student motivation, and continuous improvement.

Faculty, students, and academic partners who attend will have the opportunity to learn more about the following:

  • How do we ensure that all learners have opportunities to build practical skills that matter to them and to their future employers?
  • How can engaged learning techniques and exciting technologies enhance our teaching and learning of Global Citizenship Program skills—written communication, oral communication, critical thinking, intercultural competence, ethical reasoning, and quantitative literacy?
  • How might we assess student learning of Global Citizenship Program skills moving forward?
  • What technologies and supports within our Webster network enhance engaged learning and student motivation?

The annual Collaboratory provides a space for the Webster community to share research, collaborate across disciplines, strengthen assessment practices, and explore new directions related to teaching and learning.

Mark your calendars now for an exciting lineup of speakers, workshops, and collaborative sessions.

Please email Liza Dister, Faculty Development Coordinator at edister17@webster.edu with any questions.
