As part of UNCG’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) on Global Engagement, a final summer institute for faculty development will be offered May 15-17, 2019, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Days 1 and 2, and 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Day 3, including lunch.
The purpose of this year’s institute is to provide professional development opportunities for selected faculty and administrators who wish to sustain global engagement activities on campus beyond the funding of the QEP. “We are particularly interested in participants who serve as committee heads, dean’s office personnel, and other influential stakeholders who work within the realm of global engagement. We will focus on the future by considering a toolkit, incorporating high impact practices into majors and in co-curricular activities, discussing ways to address new general education competencies, and advancing best practices to include graduate students in global engagement. In addition to speakers, activities, and panels, GESI participants will help build a campus network of champions who are interested in sustaining global engagement beyond the five years of the QEP. Our keynote speaker is Dr. Anthony Ogden, of the University of Wyoming, who created an intercultural toolkit similar to what we have in development now at UNCG. We will focus some of our energy on sustainability work groups designed to brainstorm a future plan that supports faculty development and student education across all learning environments at UNCG.”
