The American Council on Education (ACE) and The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) have each identified global learning as an essential dimension of university education. More specifically AAC&U “has identified global knowledge, ethical commitments to individual and social responsibility, and intercultural skills as major components of a twenty-first-century liberal education” (Musil, Assessing Global Learning, 2006, p. 3). Global learning is meant to prepare students for a diverse, interdependent, and highly changing world.
The Office of International Programs provides resources for faculty interested in internationalizing their courses, invites outside speakers to address the internationalization of higher education, and provides co-sponsorship to support invited guests with an international focus.
This collection of resources brings together examples and usable materials from universities and other stakeholders around the US and Europe. These resources can be used for many purposes, such as to assess the current level of internationalization in courses, to identify opportunities to increase engagement with global issues or to use as examples of how courses can be internationalized. There are specific resources where available for individual colleges. Click here to see a list of resources. If you would like us to add a resource to this list, please contact Karen Gardenier.
