Structure & Schedule
The GLL is organized as a faculty/professional learning community. For Spring 2023, There will be two cohorts for applicants to choose from enabling participants to have a balance of flexibility, structure and accountability to achieve their teaching and learning goals.
Each cohort is limited to a maximum enrollment of 15 participants.
Learning community meetings complement asynchronous, self-directed learning modules, assignments and peer coaching drawing from the evidence base on study abroad and principles of backwards design.
Through this integrative design, participants have meaningful opportunities to learn from each other and apply their learning in real time to develop, revise and refine essential course/program materials to strengthen their academic grounding, equity-centeredness, and cultural relevance.
During the GLL expect to work on the following course/program materials:
