1 Academic Leadership Retreat August 15, 2011

2 Prepping for Launch  Honed and simplified student learning outcomes.  Global Learning Cultural Events  Developed and refined assessment instruments.  Planned professional development conference for September 17.

3 Simplifying the SLOs  Revised in response to feedback from SACS site visit team and those reviewing assessment instruments.  The SLOs are still  Global Knowledge  Global Attitudes  Global Engagement

4 New Language  SLO 1: Global Knowledge. Seniors will demonstrate significantly greater global knowledge than beginning freshmen.  SLO 2: Global Attitudes. Seniors’ attitudes will demonstrate a greater acceptance of cultural difference than those of beginning freshmen.  SLO 3: Global Engagement. Seniors will engage in diverse intercultural groups and settings more often and more effectively than beginning freshmen.

5 What We Will Assess  Global Knowledge:  Facts, Ideas, and Concepts  Understanding  Global Attitudes  Acceptance of difference  Global Engagement  Frequency  Effectiveness  Short Hand: What do students know? What do students think? What do students do?

6 GLI Assessment: Global Learning Evaluation  The Global Learning Evaluation is a 60 item, multiple choice assessment developed in-house to measure student learning on all three SLOs.  Summer 2011: Instrument developed  August 2011: Samples of Freshmen and Seniors (baselines and to set benchmarks)  Beginning in November 2011: Regular administration to representative samples of students for assessment purposes.

7 Cultural Events  Developed a process to identify Global Learning Cultural Events.  Added identifier to University Events and Cultural Events Calendars.University Events Cultural Events  Logo for publicity purposes:

8 Cultural Events Assessment  Representative sample of cultural events.  Paper instrument distributed and collected by monitors.  Questions tied to all SLOs, plus some demographic questions.  Instrument is available here: essmentfinal.pdf essmentfinal.pdf  University College staff will compile and report results to hosting departments and to the University community.

9 GLI and ULC Assessment Using Student Writing Samples  Revised rubrics for assessing senior capstone papers and HMXP 102 papers to include:  GLI assessment  University-Level Competencies  Created rubric to assess ACAD 101 reflection papers.  Old and new rubrics will be available on the University College faculty resource page.

10 Minor Change to Syllabus Policy  To track participation in the GLI through syllabi statements.  To communicate to students and entire campus community that GLI is pervasive.  To be included on all syllabi in courses with global learning components, even those not in the Touchstone Program.

11 Syllabus Policy Language “This course participates in the Global Learning Initiative. The global learning component(s) of this course is/are the following:” {insert list} For example, “a comparison of the US Bill of Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” or “Students will read nine culturally different versions of the Cinderella story,” or “Students will engage with non-native English speaking students attending Rock Hill public schools.” Courses in foreign language or those approved to meet the Touchstone Program’s Global Perspectives requirement may simply state, “This course participates in the Global Learning Initiative by its very nature.”

12 Save the Date  Global Learning Initiative Professional Development Conference  Saturday, September 17, 2011  DiGiorgio Campus Center  Open to all faculty and staff -- presenters and observers alike.
