Jefferson College--Internationalizing the Curriculum: Global Education.
Hollander, Lisa, Ed.
This document presents the results of "Internationalizing the Curriculum," a project designed to enhance the global knowledge and experiences of students and faculty at Jefferson College (Missouri). Specifically, this project encouraged the infusion of international dimensions into selected courses from several disciplines. The methodology used was the curriculum module approach. Modules could be one week or one month long, or the unit could be broken into smaller parts spread out over a semester. Each instructor selected the length and subject of the module to specifically match course content. College faculty members from the academic side, the vocational-technical side, and the area technical school (high school) participated. Over 300 students have participated in the project since spring 2001. Overall, students gained a substantial amount of new knowledge about other cultures, people, and ideas. All the instructors reported significant levels of comparative cultural discussion and analytic debate among their students. This document includes summaries from each instructor of the 18 international modules. The summaries include a description of the modules, specific resources used, a discussion of the objectives and goals, at least two feedback/assessment forms, and conclusions regarding the efficacy of the modules for the students and instructor.
