Integrating a module into your course
Introduction

Globalization Modules can be integrated into the class in multiple ways. Some educators teach the whole module in two weeks. Others intersperse the module throughout the semester. Others might choose to integrate more than one module, picking and choosing lesson plans that are relevant to their course.  This is no wrong or right way to do it.

Each module contains six one-hour lessons plans. Within each lesson plan, there are multiple activities provided to teach the stated learning objectives. Educators can choose which readings, activities, etc. to bring into the class while staying true to teaching the lesson’s learning objectives.  You can also bring in your own readings that address the module themes.

This online training program will also provide you with the tools to create your own activities to fulfill the module learning objectives.  See the section on holistic thinking, cross-cultural communications, and technology.

Timing is extremely important.  Many of the professors who piloted these modules in their courses felt that their course benefitted from teaching the module early in the semester, as the intellectual concepts were valuable to classroom discussions throughout the semester.

The videos below provide testimonials by SUNY Brockport and Cortland faculty who piloted the modules in their course.
