||Integrating Global Learning Perspectives within Physical Education, Physical Activity, & Sport
||This module will be beneficial for faculty who want to find different pedagogical methods for students to reflect upon their own social identities and educate them about cultural competency and global perspectives, particularly in relation to their own identities and experiences. Furthermore, this module will help faculty educate students how to search for and read scholarly articles. Through the cultural and global content covered in class, as well as knowledge learned from the scholarly articles, students will be able to compare and contrast global perspectives about a specific topic of interest. In this course, it is related to physical education, fitness, and sport, but the pedagogical methods can be applied to all content/academic areas in higher education.
|Global Learning Outcomes Addressed:
||Knowledge: Understands his/her culture in global and comparative context (recognizes that his/her culture is one of many diverse cultures & that alternative perceptions & behaviors may be based in cultural differences)||Knowledge: Demonstrates knowledge of other cultures (beliefs, values, perspectives, practices, and products).||Skill: Uses knowledge, diverse culture frames of reference, and alternative perspectives to think critically and solve problems||Skill: Interprets issues & situations from more than one culture.
||There are four phases to the module, all of which were integrated throughout the entire course. A minimum of four 75-minute classes specifically addressed global learning content and outcomes. In addition, students were required to spend a significant amount of time outside of class completing their assignments. I did provide one 75-minute class period during the last month of the semester to work on their culminating group project.
