Event: Think Globally, Teach Locally -- Faculty Workshop
Think Globally, Teach Locally
Graduating global citizens is one of Georgia Tech’s strategic goals, yet many students don’t have the opportunity to study abroad. What are we doing at home to help students engage in global challenges and develop intercultural communication skills? In this workshop, we invite participants to consider how integrating the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into their courses will help foster global citizenship no matter where students are learning. The UN SDGs are a set of 17 broad and interconnected goals that address the global challenges we face. We argue that the SDGs can be incorporated into any course regardless of discipline. Faculty members from diverse programs at Georgia Tech will share examples of how they have incorporated the SDGs into their courses. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to articulate their vision for how the SDGs may work in their own course and identify (and propose) resources that can help support them in realizing it.
