Faculty Global Engagement

Discover the resources, support and opportunities that the office of Global Learning Initiatives provides for faculty as they strive to advance Global Learning for All.

Design Sprints

Each semester Global Learning Initiatives supports faculty interested in developing global engagement options for their courses and programming through the implementation of Design Sprints. Each Global Learning Design Sprint seeks to create a collaborative brainstorming space for faculty to think through their course development/enhancement process. In addition, each Global Learning Design Sprint strives to create a welcoming climate and community; provide relevant content to draw on and expand prior knowledge; share tools and tips to elevate global connections, perspectives, and activities; and assist faculty in conveying the importance of a global mindset to UMD students.
