From Classroom to Workplace: Globalizing the Curriculum for the Future of Creative Business and Technology
The Fashion Institute of Technology, SUNY New York, New York March 8, 2024 Flyer.pdf Globalization is a reality in today's interconnected world, and organizations and companies are increasingly operating on a global scale. Graduates who have a global perspective and are able to work effectively with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds are more likely to succeed and have an impact in these environments. Creative business and technology fields are constantly evolving, and a global curriculum can expose students to new ideas, techniques, and sustainable best practices from around the world.
This conference will draw on the faculty expertise of FIT, as well as two well known international curriculum experts, Dr. Namrata Sharma, faculty at SUNY Oswego, and an expert with the United Nations’ Harmony with Nature Knowledge Network, and Dr. Harvey Charles, Vice Provost for International Affairs, University of Minnesota. It will provide an occasion to talk about how faculty, and the administrators who support them, can design globalized courses and curriculum to better prepare students for success in the fields of creativity, business and technology. Students equipped with global learning also have the power to create positive social change, and help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Attendees will learn ways that universities can globalize the curriculum, how to engage faculty in all areas of the college who are designing and updating courses and programs, including in science and technology, strategies to harness the power of industry partnerships and internships to give students global learning experiences at home and abroad, how to incorporate research with international student collaborators into the syllabus, how to design innovative study abroad courses, and how to use a global focus in courses as an opportunity to teach about sustainability, diversity, and equity.
