Join Jillian Kinzie, Associate Director, NSSE Institute and NILOA Senior Scholar; Thomas Nelson Laird, IU Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Postsecondary Research; and Alexander McCormick, IU Associate Professor and Director of the National Survey of Student Engagement as they speak about Exploring Disciplinary Differences in Global Engagement and Learning at the AAC&U Global Learning conference October 12-14 in New Orleans, LA. Read more about their session below, or check out the conference overview.
Friday, October 13, 4 – 5 p.m. Galerie 5, Second Floor
Session facilitators will describe disciplinary differences in global engagement and learning (GEL) by sharing results from NSSE's Global Learning module. Through active exchange--including anticipating results, engaging with presented results, and discussion with others in the session--participants will learn about 1) students' exposure to global and international topics; 2) students' engagement with global issues in and outside of the classroom; and 3) students' perceptions of how much their institution facilitated their development along several dimensions of global and intercultural competence. Participants will also discuss their reactions to the findings and share what they are doing on their campuses to assess GEL and how findings from their assessment efforts inform accreditation activities. Presenters will end the session by sharing information and resources NSSE staff have compiled to aid in the assessment of global engagement and intercultural competence.
