Global Citizenship Pedagogy Community

The Global Citizenship Pedagogy Community (GCPC) is a learning community for faculty and professional staff developed by the Global Studies Cluster and the Teaching Learning Center. It is aimed at bringing faculty and student-facing staff together to consider the way we practice global citizenship amongst each other, and outwards to students, our Geneseo community, and beyond. As Geneseo moves from local to global in its curriculum, teaching, research, and community engagement, the GCPC invites colleagues to imagine, create, and innovate ways to deepen and/or broaden our global studies content through community discussions and collaborative sharing of resources useful to our students. The major objective of the GCPC is to allow participants to bring their interdisciplinary perspectives to consider innovative methods and pedagogies useful to the group, but also to others wanting to engage in global content.

We invite those who are well versed in Global Studies content, as well as those learning to globalize their curriculum towards Geneseo’s blossoming vision. The first cohort will meet periodically throughout the 2023-24 academic year to build community around current courses and student engagement/projects, and collectively determine desired outcomes based on personal and community goals. The output will be determined by the learning community, but may include mutual support to develop content, assignments, projects from students, assessment, and portable course modules.
