Fall 2021 Internationalizing the Curriculum Seminar


  • Lisa Dombrowski, Professor, East Asian Studies and Film Studies
  • Peter Gottschalk, Professor, Religion, Education Studies, and Science in Society
  • Elizabeth Hepford, Assistant Professor of the Practice, TESOL, Education Studies, and English
  • Iddrisu Saaka, Assistant Professor, Dance

Two of this year’s participants, Beth Hepford and Iddi Saaka, used the seminar time to develop new courses. The other three participants chose to develop internationalized lessons for existing courses. The projects can be found below in alphabetical order by the faculty member’s last name.

Interestingly, all five of these professors have always incorporated international dimensions into their teaching. Their prior experience made our conversations rich and complex. They shared resources and explored internationalizing from different perspectives and different disciplines. We discussed an education-based approach, not only incorporating international content but also considering learning outcomes and how to achieve them. Faculty members thought about what knowledge, skills, and attitudes their students should have developed in their courses and by the time they graduate.
