2018 Lunch & Learn Series

February 6: How to Plan & Lead a Study Abroad Program (Read the Recap)
studyabroad

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) estimates that 4.6 million students crossed a border to pursue an international education in 2015, up from 2.1 million in 2001. During the academic year 2015-2016 alone, over 325,000 U.S. students studied abroad for academic credit from their home campuses, up 4 percent from the previous year.  A recent IIE Generation Study Abroad survey of over 4,500 alumni of U.S. higher education instutions who studied abroad between 1999 and 2017 showed that study abroad has an overall positive impact on the development of a wide range of career and life skills. The largest portion of respondents reported significant gains in intrapersonal, cognitive, and interpersonal skills, and more than half believed that study abroad contributed to a subsequent job offer.

During this Lunch & Learn, Wendy Viggiano, coordinator of international programs at WORLD,  will engage faculty and staff in a discussion on how to plan and execute a study abroad experience for Stetson students. Faculty who have successfully conducted study abroad programs, including Dr. Kimberly Reiter,  will share lessons learned, offer tips, insight, and ideas. The deadline for proposing a study abroad course or program is September 15, 2018. Come and learn how we can help you! Lunch is provided and space is limited.

All Faculty/Staff Welcome
RSVP: Lunch provided


March 14: Internationalizing the Curriculum – Resources for Faculty

“Given changing student demographics, economic challenges, consistently low study abroad rates, and an increasing imperative to ensure that all students are prepared to live and work in a globalized world, institutions are recognizing the need to deliver international competency via the core student learning experience: the on-campus curriculum” (American Council on Education (ACE) Internationalization in Action: Internationalizing the Curriculum).

Internationalized courses are the building blocks of an internationalized curriculum. Join Drs. Bill AndrewsElisabeth Poeter, and Yves Clemmen, WORLD Class Travel Awardees experienced in internationalizing coursework, to discuss the essential elements of an internationalized course such as student learning outcomes, assessments, course content, and activities. Information about  WORLD Class Travel Awards will be also available. Come prepared to share and learn. Lunch is provided and limited spaces are available.

All Faculty/Staff Welcome 
RSVP via Outlook invitation
Lunch available at 11:30 am

April 12: How to Embed Global Learning in Your Lesson Plan

Featuring Dr. Rachel Core, assistant professor of sociology

Then come and learn from your colleagues about how they embed global learning in their courses and its impact on student learning and performance.  Come prepared for lively discussion and bring your ideas to share with others.

Summer Grants

Apply for a Summer Grant
Another form of support for teacher-scholar faculty development of pre-tenure and  tenured faculty is through Summer Grants. Projects supported by a summer grant must contribute to the university’s mission of teaching, research, and artistic development. Summer Grant funds are not normally awarded for course development unless the project has an application beyond the classroom, as, for example, an article on pedagogy.  Grants are intended to support activities carried out in the summer months (May – August) immediately following the award.

We all spend a lot of time planning and supporting our students’ success, but what about your own success? How much time do you spend looking at your own career plans, much less your life plans? What would you like to do next? What can you do to get there? And what might hold you back?  In this session, participants will examine:

  • Life balance: what does it look like and can we achieve it in this 24/7 always-connected world?
  • What’s next?  Where would you like to be a year from now and how can you start today?
  • How has resistance kept you from moving forward, particularly in areas you care about the most?
  • Learn a simple 4-step plan that will keep you moving forward even through retirement.
