Global/Diversity learning (GDL) is a high impact practice that provides a framework for exploring multiple perspectives on viewing the interdependent world.
This high impact practice (HIP) includes the following avenues:
Multiple perspectives of GDL:
1. Comparative discussion: Students are encouraged to voice and hear different viewpoints adding layers to learning of the content being discussed.
2. Investigative approach: Students are encouraged to engage in “researching” global issues.
3. Articulation of a personal stance: Students are encouraged to formulate their own personal viewpoint / perspective/outlook to construct a new way of approaching/analyzing the course material being discussed.
4. Growth in learning and critical thinking: Students are encouraged to reconstruct their ideas and motivated to take action.
5. Evaluation: Students are encouraged to assess their own transformation.
