Putting the Local in Global Education

Our invited chapter, Pedagogy into Practice: Teaching Environmental Design through the Native American Sustainable Housing Initiative, has been published in a new book titled: Putting the Local in Global Education: Models for Transformative Learning Through Domestic Off-Campus Programs. The position taken in this volume is that domestic off-campus study can be just as powerful a transformative learning experience as study overseas, and that domestic programs can equally expand students’ horizons, their knowledge of global issues and processes, their familiarity and experience with cultural diversity, their intercultural skills, and sense of citizenship.
