Provost's Teaching and Learning Summit 2013
Registration for the Summit will be available after Opening Day of the fall 2013 semester.
4:00 - 5:00 p.m. Global Learning Poster Browsing and Reception
5:00 - 7:00 p.m. Provost’s Welcome, Awards, and Keynote Address by Kevin Hoveland, Senior Director of Global Learning and Curricular Change at the American Association of Colleges and Universities. Please encourage students to attend.
In this multidisciplinary panel discussion, members of the teaching community will address core questions of global citizenship, privilege, and their centrality to 21st century learning in higher education.
How do Sustainability, Civic Learning, and Intercultural Knowledge and Competence reveal connections between the local and the global? USP Signature Question coordinators, instructors, and students model answers to these questions as they invite participants to think about the potential of the USP to enhance global learning.
Instructors and students tell inspiring stories that reveal it is possible to stay home and engage in global perspective-taking through virtual travel, online communities, content infusion, and partnerships with international students.
This centerpiece event of the Summit provides opportunities for one-on-one conversations to explore how to create global learning in a specific course—without leaving Oshkosh.
Beyond “holding class in a different country,” how do those who lead study abroad courses facilitate students’ acquisition of global competencies? Study abroad leaders and students facilitate a rich conversation.
How does a “global perspective” intersect with or differ from the multicultural learning that occurs by exploring racial and ethnic identities and non-western cultures? In this session, summer dialogue teams report on their investigation of this question as a catalyst for campus-wide dialogue about “Ethnic Studies” and “Non-Western Culture” course expectations.
Students who have embraced their global citizenship will challenge their peers to engage in the types of learning that will teach them to address global questions knowledgably and to engage the world’s most pressing problems. Encourage students to learn about this exciting opportunity.
