Globally Networked Learning (GNL) Workshop for YorkU Faculty

September 21, 2021 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Interested in helping York students expand their international horizons? Ever heard about virtual international exchanges? Curious to learn more?

The GNL pedagogy supports student-centered learning and teaching for the 21st century university. It supports the development of global competencies – among students and instructors – required to adapt, thrive, and succeed in becoming global citizens engaged in complex, intercultural problem solving. As a form of experiential education that transcends borders, the promise of GNL can be reinforced through open pedagogy, development of digital literacy and production, and other forms of innovative knowledge-making practices across cultures.

At this workshop, the GNL team and York International will provide in-depth and hands-on guidance to help York University faculty members bring global perspectives and cross-cultural discussion into existing courses.

Some of these how-to’s include:

  • Learn how to integrate GNL-enhanced activities in their courses including developing new and/or enhancing existing partnerships through GNL.
  • Hear about the experiences of York GNL faculty course leaders including student learning outcomes and feedback.
  • Find out about GNL supports and resources available to York faculty members.
