Faculty and Staff Workshops
Virtual/Online Global Learning
Course Design and Instruction Workshop
These workshops engage participants in global learning strategies that they can easily implement across the curriculum and co-curriculum. Participants will explore FIU’s global learning outcomes and how these can be developed through interdisciplinary, problem-based approaches; active learning strategies; multi-perspective content; and, both traditional and authentic assessments. FIU faculty and adjuncts who participate may be eligible to receive a stipend* for attendance.
Dates (choose one) : Thursday, Sept. 24; Monday, Oct. 19; Friday, Dec. 11, 2020
Location: Virtual/Zoom Meeting (followed by fully online, asynchronous modules then a final, brief virtual end-of-workshop meeting)
*Time: 9:30a.m. – 12:00p.m.
*Note: Please feel free to hangout after the workshop to work on your syllabus or course proposal.
- FIU faculty and adjuncts teaching GL-designated courses are eligible to receive a $250 stipend for attending the entire workshop and submitting a completed GL course assessment syllabus. The matrix must be submitted at the end of the first semester after workshop attendance or the first semester after teaching their GL course. The workshop provides instructions for matrix submission. Faculty who have previously received a GL 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.
- Lead faculty developing/revising a course for GL designation may receive a $500 stipend for attending the workshop and submitting their GL course proposal to the Faculty Senate Global Learning Curriculum Oversight Committee (GLCOC). In addition to the workshop, faculty will meet individually with OGLI staff to develop and draft the proposal.
