G/I Requirements

SYLLABUS REQUIREMENTS IN ORDER FOR A CLASS TO GET G/I APPROVAL

In your syllabus, include the new G/I objectives and the explanation of what G/I is. This way your students know they are taking a G/I course and what that means.

In the assignment section, please indicate next to the assignment name which G/I objective(s) that particular assignment meets. Not all assignments have to meet a G/I requirement and a particular assignment does not have to meet them all.

Designate which assignment you want to call your "key assignment" and label it as such. It can be any assignment you want it to be. It is recommended you use the one that meets the most G/I objectives and/or the one that you feel best represents your students' learning of global and intercultural issues.

Please see example syllabi for ideas on how this can look.
