Faculty Learning Community: Global Awareness

  • Faculty Learning Community (FLC) supported by Stearns Center for Teaching and Learning and co-facilitated by Dr. Amy Lewis and Dr. Deborah Kwak will address infusing global awareness into courses. 
  • This FLC will run throughout 2022, spring and fall semesters, and aims to address global awareness at the course level. Join in conversations with faculty and staff across disciplines and campuses on course assessments, resources, teaching and learning tools that shape academic success in an interconnected and diverse world. The community will engage in learning (e.g., monthly readings, discussions, guest speakers) and sharing (e.g., syllabus and assessment examples) around the university commitment (GMU Strategic Plan 2014-2024) to: "Engagement with the world: We will prepare our students to thrive in a global context by infusing global awareness, citizenship values, and learning opportunities across all fields, and we will partner with other organizations in solving global problems where our impact will be highest." 
  • The intention of this FLC is to increase ways that global awareness is incorporated into any classroom; all Mason faculty and staff are invited to participate. For more details, contact or
