Description

The need for a workforce with global competence in the ever growing global business world has seen an increase in recent years (Rathje, 2007). Many universities incorporate learning pedagogy to increase student's global competence through study abroad and language education (Deardorff, 2011), but many of their efforts are based on tapping into the students actively interested in learning about different countries or have financial resources to travel or study abroad. There have not been sufficient discussions of how to improve global competence for students with less initial interest about different countries and financial resources to travel or study abroad. Based on this, the purpose of this research is to explore the curriculum development process of a domestic service-learning project where the target students are those with less initial interest about different countries and financial resources to travel or study abroad. To achieve the goal, this study proposes the following objectives: (1) to develop a domestic service-learning project in a lecture-based class to improve global competence of the target students, and (2) to report student learning based on the newly proposed project on global competence.
