Educating Globally Engaged Citizens: Integrating Global Learning in Undergraduate Curriculum
Spaces Remaining: 72
This workshop will explore how global learning goals can be combined with curricular change to promote the development of students as active global citizens. We will explore internationalization frameworks and the ways degree programs can be redesigned to incorporate global learning using the AAC&U Global VALUE rubric; explore how faculty learning communities can develop global curricula; and review models of local experiential learning and residential learning that help students address global issues in their community. We will examine curriculum and course internationalization strategies that prepare students to apply their academic learning in their professional fields and enable them to become the next generation of leaders who can address major global challenges.

Globalization of the Curriculum: What, Why and How
Spaces Remaining: 60
Queen’s University is becoming increasingly diverse with students from around the world joining the university community to pursue their education. Accordingly, globalization of the curriculum is needed to ensure that educators proactively respond to the cultural, linguistic, and educational diversity that they will inevitably encounter in their classrooms. In this webinar, participants will explore the what, why and how of curriculum globalization, and start envisioning what a globalized curriculum might look like in their specific discipline. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to incorporate (at least) one pedagogical element of curriculum globalization into their course (re)development.

Anti-Racist Pedagogy: An Introduction to Key Concepts and Practices
Spaces Remaining: 76
A limited number of opportunities for university instructors to gain a better understanding of concepts of race, racism, anti-racism, and anti-racist pedagogies through professional development workshops and training sessions within their respective institutions has been identified as one of the key barriers to effectively implementing anti-racist initiatives in Canadian Universities (Henry and Kobayashi 2017; Dua and Bhanji 2017). In this interactive webinar, we will explore key terms and theories in the practice of anti-racist pedagogies, as well as provide a brief overview of critical concepts underlying anti-racist pedagogical approaches such as race, racism, and anti-racism. With an introduction to ideas and best practices for embedding and supporting anti-racist pedagogies within university classrooms and departments, participants will be encouraged to reflect on the curriculumn they teach and brainstorm ways they could integrate anti-racist pedagogies into their own classroom settings.

Geared towards participants from a range of disciplines, identity positions and teaching experience, this session will help build on prior knowledge and develop participants' anti-racist strategies in classroom environments.
