Global Citizenship Breakout Session

A breakout session Wednesday afternoon in the University Center

The 2011 Global Citizenship Program Summer Collaboratory began Wednesday, July 13, at the Webster Groves campus. Faculty from each college and school — including faculty from Webster’s European campuses — joined with key professionals to collaborate and begin implementing the Global Citizenship Program.

Wednesday’s  program included presentations on:

Challenges in implementation by Gail Evans, dean of Undergraduate Studies, San Francisco State University

Institutional cultural change by Susan Gano-Phillips, professor of Psychology, University of Michigan-Flint

Learner-centered practices by Margaret Cohen, associate provost for Professional Development, UM-St. Louis

Other sessions address integrating ethical reasoning, writing, developing rubrics, collaboration between Academic and Student Affairs, and more.

The Collaboratory continues Thursday and Friday at the Old Post Office Campus. A full schedule of sessions is available on this Faculty Development Center page.

  2. So great to have a Vienna colleague present at the STL meeting. Looking forward to implementing the new curricular structures.

    Gale, we’ll post slides and video of about seven presentations or so in a few days. Stay tuned — and I’ll try to remember to come post here when do that.
    Regina, it was fabulous to meet Jean-Pascal and to have him participate with us in shaping the implementation phase of our work. Jean-Pascal, Anne, Julianna, and Bill represented Europe very well, and their contributions helped make the event an enormous success.
    Thanks, Ryan, for the link!
