Mapping internationalization

The Fries Center for Global Studies, along with the Quantitative Analysis Center, has embarked on a project to “map” Wesleyan’s curriculum, research activities, study abroad, and other initiatives. It is hoped that the resulting interactive map or maps will help us to see where we are well represented and where there are gaps in our representation.

In order to continue to promote intercultural and global learning, FCGS is holding a seminar designed to help faculty internationalize their courses and curriculum. Faculty members (including Department/College Chairs, Center Directors, and/or Academic Deans, if available) will come together to discuss their efforts, past and future, to incorporate global perspectives and intercultural learning into their teaching and curriculum. There will be four two-hour seminar meetings in fall 2021, facilitated by Emily Gorlewski, Ed.D., of the Fries Center for Global Studies, in which participants will work together toward a Wesleyan definition and process for internationalization. The outcome for each participant should be a new course, a new unit of a course, an existing course re-worked, or other project in which each faculty member demonstrably internationalizes their teaching or their department’s curriculum. Faculty will present these projects to the FCGS and other faculty in spring 2022; the implementation of the projects should take place during the 2022 calendar year. Each faculty member will receive an honorarium of $500 to participate. A limited number of seats is available in the seminar.

Faculty members will apply using the Pedagogical Initiatives Application, new for spring 2021.
