NC Scholars of Global Distinction
Globalizing curriculum ensures students develop the global competencies and skills needed for the 21st century workforce and to thrive in a world that is increasingly globally connected. It is also an integral part of the NC Scholars for Global Distinction program. The Global Learning Office is also developing a Globalization in the Classroom Learning Community to support this effort. If you are interested in globalizing your course, you will need to meet the criteria for evaluating courses with significant global content*:
- Course demonstrates intentional effort to prepare students to live and work in an interconnected world. Preparation includes the ability to recognize and address issues and phenomena at global, international and local levels, as well as develop intercultural competencies. Course includes a substantial focus on one or more of the above abilities/competencies.
- Syllabus explicitly lists learning outcomes that involve global learning as a result of participation in the course. One or more of these outcomes should develop cultural competency.
- Assessment requires students to demonstrate learning that reflects the global dimension of the course.
- Instructional media (text and/or supplemental resources) help frame the subject of the course in global terms.
- Course includes assignments requiring students to grapple with global issues related to the subject of the course.
*These criteria have been adapted and modified based on the Davidson County Community College model and the criteria developed by the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) and the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU).
Submit a copy of your course syllabus, including specific learning outcome(s) that involve(s) global learning, and attach course assignments and assessment descriptions demonstrating that the course meet the aforementioned criteria to the NC Scholars of Global Distinction committee or to the Global Scholars Coordinator.
