Research output: Book Chapters | Papers in Conference ProceedingsBook ChapterResearchpeer-review


Higher education historically bears the mission of cultivating citizens. Wherever universities are situated, and whatever students study, educators in contemporary higher education are compelled to think about how to best prepare their students for living and working in a complexly interdependent global environment. This chapter discusses a series of international course connections, between Lingnan University (Hong Kong) and other collaborative partners, that specifically addresses developing competencies in global problem-solving. Using the Association of American Colleges and Universities (henceforth AAC&U) Global Learning VALUE rubric as our guide, we outline our incremental process of instructional design and demonstrate how such collaborators can cultivate knowledge of global systems and help promote global problem-solving.
