David Selby was a virtual guest speaker at the Preparing Students for Socially Responsible Global Citizenship Workshop organized by the Office of Academic Development and Assessment at Texas State University-San Marcos for 14-15 May 2013.
The workshop was attended by some thirty faculty and lecturers interested in embedding global citizenship into their courses and formed part of Texas State efforts to internationalize the curriculum according to the 2012-2017 University Strategic Plan. It included discussion of articles, a student panel, strategy dialog, ideas exchanges and development of course projects and activities, as well as interventions from guest speakers.
David offered a rationale for globalizing programs, discussed the importance of preparing students for globally responsive citizenship, identified different ways of embedding a global and sustainability dimension in a university curriculum, and briefly introduced the mission, values and work of Sustainability Frontiers.
Feedback was positive: ‘The faculty found what you shared so helpful and informative. You provided us with so much information in such a short period of time’.
