Faculty Webinar: Transformative Project-Based Integrative Global Learning X STEM – Feb 8

Posted by The Forum on Education Abroad on January 31, 2023
Come and join a discussion of ongoing work at Worcester Polytechnic Institute by Kathleen Head, Director of the Global Experience Office and Dr. Sarah Stanlick, Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative and Global Studies and the Director of the Great Problems Seminar.

About the Session:

What does it mean to be a global polytechnic?  How do you instill a sense of critical global citizenship across students whose training is focused on science, technology, engineering, and math?   Over the last ten years, project-based learning at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has been increasingly global, taking place in globally focused local community organizations and place-based projects around the world. In this session, Kathleen and Sarah share their journey mapping tool for students as they chart their WPI experience, highlight an ethical, community-engaged global learning framework that is a feature and mandate of the WPI curriculum, and situate WPIs integrative experience across issues of equity, inclusion, and justice.

Date and Time: Wednesday, February 8, 2023, 11:00 AM – 12:15 PM
