Author: Gretchen Busl
Abstract: This presentation will help participants consider how to “Go Global without Going Abroad,” which is the motto of our NEH-funded program “Building Global Perspectives in the Humanities.” One major goal of this program is to increase inclusivity in global education, as many students find traditional education abroad programs time- and cost-prohibitive.

“Local as Global: Experiential Learning in the Humanities” (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: “Local as Global: Experiential Learning in the Humanities”
Author: Ashley Bender
Author: Gretchen Busl
Abstract: This poster will focus on best practices for creating experiential education partnerships, modeled on the efforts of Texas Woman’s University to connect with Dallas/Fort Worth-area organizations for the NEH-funded project “Building Global Perspectives in the Humanities.” This project aligns with LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes and Principles of Excellence to create an opportunity for students to go global without going abroad by incorporating experiential learning into global perspectives courses. The presenters will help attendees imagine how to launch their own such partnerships, focusing on four key stages: evaluating institutional and student needs, identifying prospective partners, communicating stakeholder contributions and benefits, and establishing institutional agreements. Discussion will focus on inclusivity, since the primary goal of this project is to increase access to global learning. Because many students find traditional education abroad programs time and cost prohibitive, the facilitators will focus on leveraging local resources to create global experiences.
