The Global Learning Rubric was developed by a committee of faculty participants in AAC&U’s Shared Futures: General Education for a Global Century project (funded by the Henry Luce Foundation). It is modeled on the rubrics written for AAC&U’s Valid Assessment of Learning in Undergraduate Education (VALUE) project. The rubric offers a common vocabulary for defining global learning and for identifying the kinds of skills and knowledge associated with its multiple dimensions. Like all rubrics, the global learning rubric reflects the best efforts of a diverse group of faculty members to come to agreement on what learning matters most to their students. The resulting document is meant to be provocative, not definitive; the process of defining global learning, we have found, is perhaps more important than the product.
