Online Resource Library

Many faculty already creatively incorporate global perspectives into their courses. The Global Initiative’s Online Resource Library offers web-based access to enable faculty from all disciplines to share their ideas about how they imbed global perspectives into their teaching.  The Online Resource Library highlights teaching strategies, discussion questions, activities and exercises, and resource and reading materials that support the integration of global content into current courses. The intent of the Resource Library is to provide support that enables faculty to expand students’ global awareness without undertaking major course revisions.

Please use the index to identify approaches in specific thematic areas.  If you would like to suggest additional thematic areas, please e-mail Barbara Schaier-Peleg at Barbara.Schaierpeleg@bcc.cuny.edu.

(Online resource materials will include books, articles, media—DVDs, CD-ROMs, syllabi, assignments, and exercises.) The themes and sub-themes listed below have been suggested by the Global Initiative Steering Committee.  We plan to revise them as we receive your submissions.
