The Office of the Associate Vice President for International Education and Global Engagement has allocated funds to encourage innovations in instruction to internationalize existing courses within the curriculum of departments. The goal of this award is to ensure that the “variety and scope of the University's international curricular offerings are continuously broadened and deepened,” as articulated in the Global Perspectives pillar of the CSULB Mission.
Four awards of three units of assigned time each will be provided to departments to revise standard course outline(s) that augment existing student learning outcomes to include global learning components. A wide range of proposed instructional approaches, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, are eligible; including, but not limited to, course readings and assessment measures, synchronous and asynchronous international course collaborations, integration of international students, and international experiential learning.
All faculty receiving assigned time from this award will be required to attend two 60- to 90-minute workshops. The Global Studies Institute will host these workshops in collaboration with the International Education Committee and the Center for International Education, providing a faculty development opportunity, a supportive cohort, and technical assistance. At these workshops, participants will provide data for assessment purposes to include sample assignments and evidence of student work.
The CSULB International Education Committee, in collaboration with the Center for International Education, shall conduct the selection of proposals. Proposals shall be evaluated and funded on their merit based upon the criteria below.
- The depth, quality, and innovation of the proposed internationalization of the course
- The breadth of the proposed change in the internationalization of the curriculum
- The scale of the impact of the internationalization of the course upon student learning, in terms of the number of students who would benefit from these curricular changes
Departments are invited to submit proposals and attach a copy of the current standard course outline, as well as a sample of a current syllabus with their application. A campus announcement will be made annually about the incentive awards and application deadlines.
The proposed course modifications must be initiated, and successfully certified through all stages of curricular governance, no later than the end of each Fall semester.
Additional materials that must be provided by the end of the Fall semester also include a one-page evaluation report that summarizes the outcome of the instructional modification; a copy of the new standard course outline and sample syllabus; and evidence of completion of the curricular governance process. These reporting materials should be sent to the Chair of the International Education Committee. Awardees will be invited to present their work to the campus community.
