Registration for Faculty Global Engagement Summer Institute, Partner Button Unveiled, First Audio Spotlight

Now Open: Global Engagement Summer Institute Registration
As part of UNCG’s Quality Enhancement Plan on Global Engagement, a summer institute for faculty development will be offered through the University Teaching and Learning Commons May 13-15, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day, including lunch. 

The purpose of the institute is to provide professional development opportunities for selected faculty to build new knowledge about intercultural-global topics; to develop coursework or teaching applications for use in delivering global engagement student learning outcomes; and to build campus participation through faculty sharing of expertise.  

In addition to speakers, activities, and panels, the heart of the experience will be project based.  All participants will work with a facilitator and other group members each afternoon to develop a course, or redesign a course, or create a teaching application that supports the delivery of the global learning competencies using QEP student learning outcomes. 

Please fill out the application below by March 17, 2015.  Selected participants will be notified by March 23.
