Faculty Development Grant Proposal

    4. Diversity, globalism, regional and international perspectives

      4b. Focused Study Grants to members of the faculty who express an interest and an ability to modify learning environments so as to significantly engage the issues of globalism and international learning.

Program Strategy 4b. The project will fund four to six Focused Study Grants to members of the faculty who express an interest and an ability to modify learning environments so as to significantly engage the issues of globalism and international learning. This work will be broader than 4a, but related to it. Research and develop courses and dept-wide emphases in international courses (Interim, semester abroad), interaction with Indian reservations and tribal colleges, and minority communities in urban centers.
Evaluation Activities These focused study grants will be evaluated using the same baseline, as discussed above, but are expected to be more inclusive, more meaningful and more significant than singular classroom-based efforts. More powerful evaluation experiences are expected, including structured portfolios, CD-ROM development, surveys, and specific tests of learning and accomplishment using independent measures.
Specific Intended Outcomes This goal will have been met when:

1. The exposure of students to issues of internationalization and global immersion have systematically increased within the curriculum.

2. The curriculum at Augustana is measurably different with regard to exposure to cultural diversity within its standard curriculum.

3. The broader, college-wide perspectives on internationalization and globalism are measurably different.
