Dr. Vaz, Dean of Interdisciplinary Studies at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, will lead this workshop. Participants will explore approaches to achieving goals for global literacy. Participants will start by identifying the global skills and abilities we want students to be able to demonstrate, and then consider different forms of evidence those skills and abilities might generate. Next, they’ll identify examples of assignments and activities that will generate the desired evidence. Finally, they’ll explore how those assignments and activities can fit into the curriculum, and discuss how to support successful and sustainable implementation.
Dr. Vaz's visit is co-sponsored by the Pavlis Honors College and the Office of the Provost.
