All global learning professional development opportunities are free and open to all FIU full-time and adjunct faculty, staff, and graduate teaching assistants.
Course Design and Instruction Workshop
These workshops engage participants in active global learning strategies that can then be easily implemented across the curriculum and co-curriculum. We host face-to-face workshops that can be completed in one day. We also host hybrid workshops that begin in a virtual Zoom space then move online, where participants complete asynchronous self-paced modules in Canvas.
Workshops facilitate participants' exploration of FIU's definition of Global Learning and how they may address global learning course outcomes through:
- Interdisciplinary, problem-based approaches
- Active online and virtual learning strategies
- Multi-perspective content
- Both traditional and authentic assessments
Faculty participation in a global learning workshop is key to their designing, implementing, and maintaining fidelity to FIU's global learning student learning outcomes. FIU faculty and adjuncts who participate may be eligible to receive a stipend for attendance.
Come get a taste of global learning with other workshop attendees, who will form your cohort, then experience the best online teaching strategies available as you move through the modules. We are always here to help you bring global learning to life in your own face-to-face, remote, hybrid, and fully online classes.

Faculty and adjuncts currently teaching a global learning designated course
Faculty and adjuncts are eligible to receive a $250 stipend for attending the entire workshop and submitting a completed Global Learning Course Assessment Matrix. Participants are asked to submit the matrix at the end of the first semester they teach a Global Learning course after they attend the workshop.
The workshop provides instructions for matrix submission. Faculty and adjuncts who have previously received a Global Learning workshop stipend are not eligible to receive a second stipend.
Per university policy, graduate assistants, teaching assistants, and research assistants are not eligible to receive a stipend but are encouraged to attend the workshop.
Faculty developing a proposal for a new or revised course for global learning designation
Faculty may receive a one-time $500 stipend for attending the workshop and submitting a Global Learning course proposal to the Faculty Senate Global Learning Curriculum Oversight Committee (GLCOC). We highly recommended that draft proposals be submitted to OGLI staff for feedback prior to submission to a department, school, or college curriculum committee.
All workshop participants receive access to documents used in the Global Learning course and activity development process. Log in using your AD username and password (same as your faculty/staff email account).
