Globalisation has changed our perspectives and experiences of the world through multidimensional, fluid and complex processes that interlink cultural, economic, ideological, political, social and environmental factors. In our increasingly interconnected world, the importance of developing, promoting and enhancing cultural literacy shouldn’t be underestimated. In the wake of counter-globalisation forces and the rise of the national populist movement, a rich and pluralistic appreciation of the challenges of understanding and acquiring cultural literacy will be relevant to all Warwick graduates in their personal and professional lives.
IATL’s Global Connections module offers a transdisciplinary approach to learning through an innovative and research-led discussion format which encourages students to share insights as co-collaborators. Seminars, workshops and practical activities guide the learning experience, and are facilitated by specialists from a range of subject areas who are engaged in globally-oriented projects. Students are encouraged to integrate their own disciplinary knowledge, personal experiences, and reflections as they examine the complexities of global connections throughout the module.
This module is offered by the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning (IATL) and is available at 12 and 15 CATS to undergraduates from across the University of Warwick who are in their 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year of study.
