Globally Networked Learning (GNL) Workshop for York University Faculty
Interested in helping York students expand their international horizons? Ever heard about virtual international exchanges? Curious to learn more?
The GNL pedagogy supports student-centered learning and teaching for the 21st century university. It supports the development of global competencies – among students and instructors – required to adapt, thrive, and succeed in becoming global citizens engaged in complex, intercultural problem solving. As a form of experiential education that transcends borders, the promise of GNL can be reinforced through open pedagogy, development of digital literacy and production, and other forms of innovative knowledge-making practices across cultures. At this workshop, the GNL team and York International will provide in-depth and hands-on guidance to help York University faculty members bring global perspectives and cross-cultural discussion into existing courses. Some of these how-to’s include:
- Learn how to integrate GNL-enhanced activities in their courses including developing new and/or enhancing existing partnerships through GNL.
- Hear about the experiences of York GNL faculty course leaders including student learning outcomes and feedback.
- Find out about GNL supports and resources available to York faculty members.
