全球化教育的基本原理

Global education is a learning paradigm that promotes the awareness and application of global issues and interdependencies in the teaching of every discipline, 跨学科也一样. 因此,全球化教育需要知识的获取, critical thinking 和解决问题 through which students can extend their own views and knowledge bases upon a foundation of global perspectives and 理解ings. Outcomes of a 全球教育 include the capacity of students to examine their roles in the global community, to develop a greater synthetic 理解ing of what is universal to and differentiating among peoples and societies, and to use this knowledge to inform their actions as global citizens.

Global education continues to do what higher education has traditionally aimed to do: extend students’ awareness of the world they live in by opening them to the heritage of human thought, 行动和创造力, 以及他们的阅读能力, 写, 和思考. Global education responds to changes in this world pointed to by the word “globalization.” For 全球教育, this means not a revolution, but shifts in emphasis and method.

Global education places a different emphasis on the capacities and attitudes higher education has always sought to develop in students. The communication age calls more than ever for the skills of reading, 解释, 写作, 视觉读写能力, 以及传统上在高等教育中教授的批判性思维. The production of information on a scale unlike anything ever witnessed before makes techniques for economic access to information, 对于它的处理, 解释, 和使用, 比以往更不可或缺. 加速社区内部和社区之间的互动, cultures and beliefs systems in today’s communication order makes the capacity to recognize, 理解, and respond to a variety of perspectives on human experience a quality indispensable to the educated college graduate. 全球教育, 因此, place a new emphasis on the diversities and commonalities of human experience through space and time, 关于方法, from interactive and cooperative learning on one hand to education by personal initiative on the other, that will equip students for new kinds of jobs and for their tasks and responsibilities as members of society.

全球教育课程

From courses in the natural sciences to courses in the social sciences and the 艺术 and humanities, the traditional curriculum will continue to provide much of the knowledge basic to these issues, including a strong knowledge of the heritage of the West and of the United States in particular. If the new technological age threatens familiar notions of human dignity, one task of 全球教育 might be correspondingly a new humanism. 在一般情况下, some material taught now will inevitably be reoriented in the light of the shift in emphasis required by the idea of the global as the widest context of the mission of higher education. 进一步, 全球教育 clearly entails new curriculum development and organization if it is to carry out a mission differentiated from that of traditional higher education. The constraints of subject (or major)-dominated education on our capacity to think about a world in which borders are fading in every area of life and 因此 on our capacity to act in this world does not erase the value of knowledge in depth in areas of study, but it does entail a considerably stronger emphasis on interdisciplinary studies, for example through courses defined in terms of problems or issues to which several disciplines can contribute.
