Uitgebreide vaknaam Creating a global engagement teaching module to develop awareness and understanding of diversity and inclusiveness.
Leerdoelen a) To observe, experience and practise leadership skills in a controlled environment, being the ENLIGHT European University Alliance (, specifically the ENLIGHT Think Tank for Global Engagement.
b) To acquire (new) knowledge (in a multidisciplinary environment), being teaching and learning across cultures and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).
Omschrijving On behalf of the ENLIGHT Think Tank for Global Engagement your team will be asked to develop a blended pilot module for Global Engagement. This module will have to consist of different (in-person and online) units, with peer-learning modalities, which students can accumulate at different ENLIGHT universities, and which they can integrate/combine with their individual learning path.
The aim of the ENLIGHT Global Engagement module is to enable students and staff to develop awareness and understanding of diversity and inclusiveness and learn to work with it effectively in order to enhance their global employability and citizenship in an increasingly complex, globalised and digitalised labour market. The global engagement module will follow the principles of good teaching and learning across cultures (Leask & Carroll, 2013), Global Citizenship Education (GCED), and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD).

The activities you will do:
map and connect existing learning opportunities (courses, modules, programs) with regard to global engagement, diversity, inclusiveness and empowerment;
identify gaps, for example a lack of research about the international classroom as a change process and International Classroom case studies;
conduct interviews with experts, students;
create a course outline with hybrid and blended elements, ideas for project work;
pitch your team’s design for a blended module to the ENLIGHT Think Tank on Global Engagement.

Leadership skills that will be practiced, e.g.:

-effective communication
-operating interdisciplinary
-to practice verbal skills
-to work with diversity
-to persuade people
-to cooperate with people
-to structure complex tasks
-creative and innovative thinking
