Developing Signature Learning Experiences: A Case Study of an Institution’s Transformative Journey towards Global Citizenship and Equity

Eva Aboagye


Signature Learning Experiences are unique learning experiences created by institutions to differentiate their graduates for employers. This study is a historical account of an institution's commitment to global citizenship and equity. In this case study, the institution uses diversity and the principles of global citizenship and equity to create a signature learning experience for students. The paper begins with a description of the context for change and looks at the changes that were implemented including a general education course; the embedding of global citizenship competencies in the whole institution; the implementation of a portfolio for students and the introduction of global citizenship and equity learning experiences abroad.
