This course will build on the existing experience of participants, including topics covered in the Course 7, to provide a framework for academics interested in developing undergraduate and postgraduate modules focusing on the global dimension. It will take participants through the logistical and practice aspects of conceptualizing a course, including developing intended learning outcomes, assessment strategies, and teaching methods consistent with global dimension topics. It will also provide participants with best practice and advice for communicating the importance of such modules to engineering/technical students, who may not feel that non-technical subjects are relevant to their degree. The aim of this course is to equip the participant with the knowledge and tools required to set up a module in their own undergraduate or postgraduate contexts.
