The concepts of unity and diversity can serve as an organizing principle for your global learning course if you set them in dialogue with one another.
The “boomerang” approach: starting with the local, moving to the global, and then returning to the local.
Some global phenomena are best understood at an atomic scale. Others are more appropriately studied at local or regional levels rather than at the transnational scale.
We can’t do global learning just by examining the parts because that distracts us from the point of global learning—seeing the whole.
We can do global learning on campus without having to go abroad, so that means we can also do it online, too.
Educators, you have a new learning outcome: hope.
