Posted by Association of American Colleges and Universities on March 30, 2015

Global Learning in College: Defining, Developing, and Assessing Institutional Roadmaps. A Network for Academic Renewal Conference, October 8-10, 2015, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Proposals Due April 1, 2015

The Association of American Colleges and Universities invites proposals for the 2015 AAC&U conference Global Learning in College: Defining, Developing, and Assessing Institutional Roadmaps that examine how faculty and administrators are defining, developing, and assessing global learning that prepares students to explore issues from multiple perspectives and across disciplines—and to apply what they learn to real-world situations. Proposals that showcase evidence-based practices that reflect any of the themes below, and that can be adapted readily to a wide range of institutional types, including community colleges and minority-serving institutions, are encouraged.

We look forward to your proposals in the context of the four themes listed below.

Theme I: Framing Global Learning: Definitions, Outcomes, Roadmaps
How can campuses define global learning in intentional and coherent ways and articulate outcomes that can be scaled developmentally from cornerstone to capstone of the undergraduate experience?

Theme II: Best Practices: Culturally Appropriate and Culturally Engaged Pedagogies
How are educators using student development theory informed by intercultural knowledge and research in their pedagogical practices and curricular designs?

Theme III: Assessing Global Learning: Incorporating and Evaluating Global Perspectives
How is global learning being assessed in ways that incorporate both Western and non-Western perspectives on learning outcomes? How do global learning assessments take into account and affirm students’ cultural backgrounds?

Theme IV: Organizational Leadership: Placing Real-World Issues at the Center of Student Learning
How are campuses using organizational leadership theory to engage and support all campus sectors in intentionally and coherently weaving real-world issues throughout the undergraduate experience, connecting theory with practice informed by assessment?
