Distinguishing Global Learning From Other Forms of Learning
We asked scholars in the Center for Engaged Learning research seminar on Integrating Global Learning with the University Experience to compare Global Learning to other forms of learning:
The scholars note that context of learning matters when educators engage students in global learning. What questions teachers and learners ask about those contexts and the ways they inform relationships also can distinguish global learning from other types of learning. Global learning extends disciplinary knowledge into interdisciplinary and cross-cultural spaces, prompting students to consider multiple perspectives and ways of understanding that knowledge base. See the video above for examples that help illustrate the distinction between global learning and other types of learning.
