The Global Engagement
Teaching and Learning Community

An Exploration of Learning Activities that Connect the World
with the Classroom and the Classroom with the World

Get to Know Us

We are a community of globally engaged faculty from Georgia State University’s downtown Atlanta and Perimeter College campuses. In the spring of 2019, we formed a teaching and learning community to engage in a substantive conversation about  globalizing our teaching and our students’ learning.

We began by sharing ideas for globally engaged learning activities on a Padlet wall.  Then, we sorted these ideas using a  Global Engagement Learning Matrix. We wanted to distinguish easy prep/low impact learning activities from extensive prep/high impact activities and everything in between.

Our vision is that teachers like you who see the world as their classroom will plug into our Global Engagement community as they explore, introduce, scale, and sustain globally engaging learning. We encourage you to click “Learn More” at the bottom of this page and to follow the prompts to learn about each quadrant of  the Global Engagement Learning Matrix to see which learning activities you would like to experience with your students.

We welcome you to our community!

Our Process & Our Challenge

We embrace the challenge of preparing our learners to be globally engaged citizens of the world. We strive to engage our students in learning experiences that will connect them with the world outside our classrooms. We seek to create opportunities for our students to discover and explore the people, art, cultures, languages, historical artifacts, events, political systems, and more from across the globe.

Be Inspired and Inspiring

“People of different religions and cultures live side-by-side in almost every part of the world, and most of us have overlapping identities which unite us in very different groups.

We can love what we are, without hating what- and who we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings”

~ Kofi Annan
