The Provost's Email: Integrating GCP/QEP within the major (#6)
The recent email from the Provost has encouraged departments to review their undergraduate curricula. In the list of 12 considerations, the sixth point deals specifically with the Global Citizens Project (GCP), which is a result of the USF's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP). What does it mean to integrate the GCP into a major? In this workshop, we will discuss ways for faculty and departments to integrate GCP, including discussion of the Global Citizen Award, Globally Certified Courses, and Global Pathway majors.

Note: This workshop is part of ATLE's First Friday event and is held in the Campus Library.
 
Future First Friday dates (topics to TBD)

Beyond the Research Paper: Designing Global Assignments

Interested in getting students actively engaged with global issues? In this session, we will discuss how global assignments can be incorporated into a class period or throughout a semester and into small or large classes. Participants will have the opportunity to consider a variety of assignment approaches that require thoughtful input from their students while keeping the output manageable for the instructor.

Global Certification Express
In this one-day workshop, the GCP Professional Development Specialists will help faculty prepare a certification proposal for an undergraduate Global Citizens course and guide them through the University's course proposal system. The workshop will be held in a library computer lab so that participants can work on their proposals in real time, with the goal of submitting a proposal by the end of the day.
