Globalizing the College of Agriculture Curricula Workshop Series. Proceedings of Six Workshops (Baton Rouge, Louisiana, September 16, 1993-August 26, 1994).
Louisiana State Univ., Baton Rouge. School of Vocational Education.
These proceedings report on a project designed to help faculty and administrators in the Louisiana State University (LSU) College of Agriculture to internationalize the undergraduate curriculum of the college in order to foster students' awareness of the global agriculture environment. Through a series of six workshops, the undergraduate teaching faculty in the college were provided with the background information and guidance necessary to add this international dimension to their courses. Each workshop consisted of two major components: the background/information component, which focused on global markets and why they demand the attention of all agricultural disciplines; and the methods component, which focused on assisting teaching faculty in reviewing and reformulating course outlines and materials. After the workshops were completed, the project model of implementation was made available to deans of colleges of agriculture at all 1862 and 1890 land grant institutions. The 10-page project report is followed by summaries of the six workshops in chapter II. The summaries are as follows: one conducted for the entire college faculty; one designed for college department heads/directors of schools and for the project's planning and organization committee; and four targeted for faculty in four selected sets of curricula offered by the college. Chapter III lists highlights of LSU's model for internationalization and recommendations for future globalization efforts. Appendixes include the survey and evaluation instruments and a 48-item annotated bibliography. (YLB)
