Global Learning Course Design and Instruction Workshops
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. Participants may be eligible to receive a stipend* for attendance.

Global Learning Strategies Workshops
Faculty lead one-off sessions on specific teaching strategies that work well in their Global Learning classrooms. We have recently concluded a very successful series of Spring 2017 strategies workshops, and will post new workshops in the future!
With VoiceThread, you can group conversations around images, documents, and videos. Participants can collaborate asynchronously using any mix of text, audio, video, or even a phone call. Funded through a Technology Fee Grant proposed by the Office of Global Learning Initiatives and Media Technology Services, VoiceThread is a secure, self-contained social network created especially for educational settings. One great feature: you can invite collaborators around the community, nation, and world into your VoiceThread conversations, making this a great tool for online global learning!
You can enroll in one of the VoiceThread Demo & Work sessions here: https://professionaldevelopment.fiu.edu/
The first hour will demo VoiceThread features. Participants will discover options to create, share and comment using media content (lectures, images, documents, videos, spreadsheets, etc.) as the center of a virtual conversation. Optionally, stay after the demo to create a VoiceThread in a hands-on setting. Bring your own content!
Online Global Learning Course Instruction Workshops
Whether you can’t make it to campus or just want a refresher, the Online Global Learning Course Instruction Workshop will help you to successfully infuse global learning throughout your courses.
This self-paced workshop will engage participants in the same global learning strategies discussed in our on-campus sessions. You’ll explore the meaning of global learning and global citizenship and learn how FIU’s global learning outcomes can be developed through interdisciplinary, problem-based approaches; active learning strategies; multi-perspective content; and, both traditional and authentic assessments.

*Global Learning Course Instruction Workshop Stipends
- Faculty teaching GL-designated courses are eligible to receive a $250 stipend for attending the entire workshop and submitting a completed GL course assessment matrix. The matrix must be submitted at the end of the first semester after workshop attendance. 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. In addition to the workshop, faculty will meet individually with OGLI staff to develop and draft the proposal.
All workshop participants receive a flashdrive with documents used in the global learning course and activity development process. The full content of the flashdrive is available to current FIU faculty and staff at the following link. Log in using your AD username and passwword (same as your faculty/staff email account).
