Procedures for Submitting a Course for GL Designation

Step 1: Participate in global learning development workshop

Lead faculty revising an existing course or developing a new course for global learning designation should participate in a global learning development workshop. Faculty members receive extra-state compensation for participation in all workshop sessions and submission of a course for global learning designation. Please note: Faculty who have previously received a 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 for this workshop.

In the workshop, faculty members engage in the process of revising/developing global learning courses and activities. Participants will utilize the Backwards Curriculum Design model to plan the course or activity. The workshop enables participants to design global learning outcomes, assessments, pedagogical strategies, content, and readings.

Step 2: Revise/develop course

After attending the workshop, faculty submit a draft of the course syllabus and the global learning assessment matrix to the Office of Global Learning Initiatives (OGLI). The OGLI provides feedback and assists faculty members in preparing the course for curriculum committee submission.

Step 3: Submit course for approval
