TCU’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) focuses on global citizenship by offering a range of programming to enrich curricular and co-curricular learning. At this interactive workshop, you will hear about successful examples of the major initiatives you can tap into to develop a global learning project proposal aligned with your teaching interests while also addressing key QEP learning outcomes for students. Bring your ideas—or a brainstorming spirit—for grant calls outlined at the URL below and collaborate with colleagues to begin work on a QEP proposal you can revise and edit over winter break.
To start imagining your project before attending the workshop, visit the Initiatives section of the Discovering Global Citizenship website now.
This event will be presented by Sarah Robbins, the Koehler Center Fellow for Global Citizenship. As the Koehler Center Global Citizenship fellow, Sarah Robbins is charged with facilitating conversations and program development among faculty who are incorporating the TCU Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) into their teaching. Sarah brings to this endeavor a career-long commitment to global learning, both in the classroom and beyond. She looks forward to fostering collaborative projects in curriculum development; supporting partnerships that integrate co-curricular and community-based learning with course-linked study; and helping facilitate faculty members’ own explorations of global citizenship. Since coming to TCU, Sarah has new courses in Global American Literatures and in the practice of cross-cultural learning consistent with Kwame Appiah’s model for cosmopolitan citizenship. Her scholarship has always had a global emphasis, ranging from writing on women teaching in China to co-editing a collection of publications by a missionary teacher to Angola in the early twentieth century. Recently, collaborating with a group of international faculty women, she published a collection of essays on “Bridging Cultures” that grew out of a collaborative study for ex-pat women faculty now teaching in the US. In line with the Boyer model of multi-faceted scholarship in action, Sarah hopes to support TCU faculty who would like to research their own teaching for and/or about global citizenship.
