Teacher Education Course Syllabi and Curriculum Plans

May 16, 2011

The ITLC Network is collecting course syllabi and curriculum plans in the field of teacher education that demonstrate internationalized content. The goal is to provide examples from several institutions that can serve as stimuli for faculty developing new syllabi and curricula and create discussion about best practice.

Internationalized courses and curricula come in many forms. They may include course modules on global issues and awareness, the shaping of all courses to include an international and intercultural dimension, the inclusion of texts about teaching written outside the United States, experiential learning or teaching in the local community or abroad, and many more approaches.

NAFSA's interest in such syllabi and curricula stems from its focus on promoting comprehensive internationalization, "a commitment, confirmed through action, to infuse international and comparative perspectives throughout the teaching, research, and service missions of higher education."
