Abstract

Global learning is defined here as the combination of global reach, using modern communications technologies, with global perspectives, achieved through interaction of students and faculty from diverse geographic locations and cultural backgrounds, to produce the global graduate. The global graduate exhibits all the attributes required by accreditation bodies in their chosen program plus superior communication skills, ability to work in a team and familiarity with modern communication technologies. The global graduate is much sought after by employers, large and small. This paper is about the introduction and implementation of an institution-wide transformation process to achieve the goal of integrating global learning into at least one course in every program. It presents seven determinants of success in this transformation process and some recommendations for bootstrapping and maintaining it. This is explained in the context of the project underway at Wichita State University.
