Is Western Europe Even Relevant Anymore?”

464 views

Published on

Is western Europe still relevant as a destination for research, study, and internships, or have American institutions turned their global focus elsewhere? This session will feature participants from three very different institutions: A large, private research university; a small, undergraduate liberal arts college; and a small satellite campus in Europe of a large, public research university. We'll present academic research and statistics from the field in general, and three case studies showcasing how western Europe is currently "faring" in institutional global strategies. Attendees will be invited to share their strategies and engagement with the region as well.

  6. 6. What we are doing at Temple Rome  Reviewing/re-organizing curriculum to be more interdisciplinary  Hosting series of events on contemporary issues  Adding coursework and research opportunities in departments not traditionally offered, like Journalism, Engineering, and Science  Galvanizing programs across Italy to reflect on how well prepared they are to address changing educational trends and how to prepare for future trends  Looking back at our home institutions and other institutions to understand trends to direct curricular revisions  Organizing series of conferences for AACUPI to address challenges to programs in architecture, arts and liberal arts.
  7. 7. What does Western Europe offer that other areas do not?  Unique lens to contemporary issues changing shape and power of cities and nations  Immigration  Economy  Government Instability  How can these global issues be springboards to framing curricula?
  8. 8. What are employers looking for?  College graduates with skills to innovate  Demonstrated ethical judgment and integrity, intercultural skills and capacity for continued new learning  Key Areas – more important than major:  Critical thinking  Complex problem solving  Written and oral communication  Applied knowledge in real-world settings

  19. 19. Major changes to Barnard curriculum  Modification of science requirement:  Was two semesters of same science, both with required laboratories  Now two semesters of science, one with required laboratory; the two courses can be in different sciences  Modification of foreign language requirement:  Was proficiency equivalent to four semesters of college-level study in a language (Intermediate II); fulfilled through study or exemption  Now two semesters of study in a language; no exemptions  Addition of “Global” modal requirement:  Emphasis on flow of and engagement among ideas, materials, people, etc.
  20. 20. What is the future of study abroad at Barnard?  How do we ensure that our students in the arts and humanities are considering their studies in light of their contemporary context in Europe?  How do we ensure that our students can pursue new opportunities abroad in STEM fields, whether to fulfill major or general requirements?  Student interest in studying science in social contexts – e.g., policy, ethics.
  21. 21. What is the future of study abroad at Barnard?  How do we need to alter our philosophies and practices regarding our language requirement for studying abroad?  How does this question relate to the outcome of “applied knowledge in real-world settings”?  If we reduce or eliminate our foreign language requirement, how do we ensure the experience of cultural engagement and the growth of communication skills?  How does this question relate to the outcomes of “problem solving” and “written and oral communication” in other cultural settings?  How can evolving opportunities for study abroad help to inspire the evolution of the “global” element of our own curriculum on our campus?

  24. 24. Western Europe Is Relevant  To development of academic pathways to facilitate study away in all majors  Pathways built on academic and research strengths in social and physical sciences, and humanities  In spite of continued decline in humanities majors on which many Western European study away programs were built
  25. 25. Developing Global Pathways  Without clearly defined pathways, NYU was at 43% for students studying away for fall or spring semesters  There is need for close connection to majors, minors and core requirements to facilitate increased numbers of students studying away  Students want to make sure everything will “count”  With whom are faculty collaborating on scholarship  Asked all departments where did they want their department to be in global network university
  26. 26. Developing Global Pathways cont’d  Working with directors of undergraduate studies, department chairs, global coordinators and/or school deans to develop clearly defined pathways for each major, especially those that have not been previously engaged in study away  Who we work with varies by school - there is no one size fits all  Data driven decisions  Clearly defined access to study away information from department website, as well as study away website which added a page listing courses by department  Service courses vs. pathways  Lesser need for service courses, many of which are humanities
  27. 27. Faculty Search & Course Approval Process  Originate recommendations locally at site or at NYU NY  Joint review of candidates  NYU and local labor law considerations  Same syllabus review process as courses offered at NYU NY in department and in school’s curriculum committee  Met with the same challenges as well  Course evaluations
