Faculty: Register for 2015 Global Citizenship Collaboratory May 19

| April 27, 2015

Webster’s University’s mission to transform students for global citizenship is clearly demonstrated through the exceptional course offerings and learning experiences of the Global Citizenship Program (GCP), Webster’s general education program of study. The GCP, now entering its fourth year, ensures that Webster students develop the competencies of successful global citizenship in the 21st century. The competencies central to this program are also essential for other programs looking to address the knowledge and skills strongly associated with successful careers and lifelong learning.

About the Global Citizenship Program Collaboratory

The 2015 GCP Collaboratory is a day-long institute that will emphasize the GCP rubrics as tools that express the intentions for learning across disciplines to inform teaching at various stages in the program. The Collaboratory is organized around a series of workshops focused on developing and evolving high-impact learning and how the GCP program rubrics and other tools can be resources in this process.

Academic breadth is central to the GCP and its program rubrics define not only discipline specific content knowledge, but essential intellectual and applied skills, such as critical thinking and written communication. The rubrics serve as resources to align courses to create cohesive and high-impact learning experiences for students.

The GCP Committee and the Faculty Development Center invite members of the Webster community to attend this exciting one-day institute on Tuesday, May 19, from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

Those interested in attending:

  • currently teach or plan to teach a GCP course, including First Year and Keystone seminars.
  • are interested in or tasked with developing or evolving courses for inclusion in the GCP.
  • work with a student learning initiative beyond the classroom that is related to the GCP.
  • have non-GCP courses that they would like to improve with evidence-based instructional practices.

Webster community members can register online for the 2015 Global Citizenship Program. For questions, please email askfdc@webster.edu.
