We are pleased to announce our next Global Challenges Institute at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities in Washington, DC, November 8-9, 2013.
About Global Challenges
In 2006, ADP partnered with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) to translate their 7 Revolutions framework into curricular and co-curricular strategies to educate globally competent American citizens. The 7 Revolutions content was created by CSIS and identifies the seven global trends that will shape the world by 2030: population, resources, technology, information, economic integration, conflict/security, and governance.

About the Institute
This two-day institute introduces participants to numerous tools for educating globally competent citizens. Global Engagement Scholars (faculty members) from 11 AASCU campuses describe how they have built courses and curricula around the Center for Strategic and International Studies’ 7 Revolutions Framework (population, resources, technology, information, economic integration, conflict/security and governance). Institute leaders demonstrate the teaching materials and resources they have found most valuable in the courses they teach (including introductory, first-year, discipline-based and honors courses) and guide participants in anticipating how these same tools could be used effectively on their home campuses.
Participants also have the opportunity to learn more about how to bring the new national Global Challenges blended learning course to their campuses. The blended learning model course, designed by the AASCU scholars, includes a variety of teaching methods to deliver and facilitate classroom materials and activities. The course is delivered through the Epsilen eLearning Environment (a web-based application that allows students to access course materials), The New York Times Digital Content Repository and much more. Costs for the 2013-14 academic year are $50 per student for AASCU institutions. Visit www.AASCUGlobalChallenges.org to learn more.
Each Institute participant will receive a faculty toolkit for using the global challenges content in campus courses and programs. This practical and insightful Institute is ideal for colleges and universities that want to deepen their commitment to providing effective international education in a variety of disciplines. That’s why AASCU is excited to provide reduced registration fees for campus teams. While individuals are certainly welcome, campus teams of three to five may find the Institute most instructive.
