Global Learning Adventures At Sea – BREXIT Referendum

Global Learning Adventures At Sea – BREXIT Referendum

June 2016. Baltic Sea Cruise aboard Navigator of the Seas. We visited Southampton, UK, Oslo, Norway, Copenhagen, Denmark, Tallinn, Estonia, St Petersburg, Russia, Helsinki, Finland, and Bruges, Belgium. At sea we lived BREXIT Referendum Day where the UK decided to leave the European Union. Aboard we talked to UK and European citizens and discussed their reactions. When you watch this video, you can see what happened in the UK after this historic day.

We also use this clip to summarize our 40 years of traveling, 50 countries visited, and 12 cruises so far. We emphasize the importance of traveling, learning about cultures, politics, history, and economics, and living historic events like this one.

Global Learning Series: High Seas Management

global-learning-series-capt-bagan

Capt. Tom Bagan spoke to our MAN3353 class a couple of years ago. He used to be the Master of a ship similar to the one featured in the movie “Captain Phillips“. He spoke about the Merchant Marine, Port and Cargo Operations, Weather and Security at Sea, and Crew Welfare.

Captain Bagan is back to Florida State College at Jacksonville – Deerwood Center to speak about the Merchant Marine, Jacksonville Port, and High Seas Management. Jacksonville is a global city with two US Navy Stations, a global cargo and cruise port, and a vibrant global business community. Our FSCJ students work in several industries related to our merchant marine, port operations, Armed Forces, and global companies.

Join MAN3335 Management students and Capt Bagan to kick off this academic year’s Global Learning Series. Deerwood Professors: email Dr. Jose Lepervanche if you want to bring your class and find a large classroom. Deerwood Students: email Dr. Lepervanche to reserve your seat. (Subject: High Seas Management).

Global Learning Series is one the Global Learning Opportunities: Bridges and Engagement (GLOBE) educational activities created to bring global speakers and activities to our classrooms.  GLOBE is an educational model to facilitate global collaboration and creative learning methods inside and outside the classroom. The objective is to find Global Learning Opportunities that are useful to our courses or programs, build Bridges by connecting speakers, presenters, facilitators or influencers with courses or FSCJ programs, and produce Engagement by creating active and continuous collaboration. Visit www.globallearningnews.com for more. GLOBE was introduced during FSCJ AdjunctPalooza 2016.

About GLOBE

Be a Global Learner!

Global Learning Opportunities: Bridges and Engagement (GLOBE) is a model of global collaboration and creative ideas to enhance our learning programs.

GLOBE is an educational model to facilitate global collaboration and creative learning methods inside and outside the classroom. The objective is to find Global Learning Opportunities that are useful to our courses or programs, Building bridges, by connecting speakers, presenters, facilitators or influencers with courses or FSCJ programs, and produce Engagement by creating active and continuous collaboration.

Objective of this Guide

The objective of the GLOBE guide is to provide a centralized location for global learning opportunities produced by professors, graduates, and students. Resources include library databases, links to websites, blogs, videos, and global events related to FSCJ programs and global engagement initiatives.

Implementing GLOBE

In order to implement GLOBE it is necessary that professors, graduates, or interested students follow these steps:

  1. identify their personal interests by doing an update personal SWOT analysis. Once identified personal Strengths, personal potential Opportunities will show up.
  2. Search for innovative educational models (i.e. Finland educational method) and creative content in specific areas of knowledge (i.e. Cold War impact in democracies and global business, Impact of Brexit in the US, museums, etc.). These are the Global Learning Opportunities to find.
  3. Use emerging technologies to find new content and connections (Google Scholar, Google Earth, Mobile Apps). Start Building bridges.
  4. Find real players to build bridges of knowledge (local speakers, international speakers via Skype)
  5. Match cases, speakers and content with current learning objectives of specific courses. (Be outside the textbook, classroom).
  6. Create active collaboration by inviting guests to classes, show new videos, cases, and real examples of current decision makers, leaders, innovators, and problem solvers (i.e. similar to Writers Series, Bosnia list, Socrates Café, TEDx etc. Create continuous Engagement as part of our courses. (Outdoors University, Scouting Adventures).

 GLOBE is a simple model that looks for creative and new content. It also allows professors to create new content and to collaborate with other professors in other areas of knowledge. For example, attending a Bosnia List presentation about a book and history helped in the search for Bosnia & Herzegovina recovery and international help after the war. Our trip to Mostar, a city divided by religions and destroyed in many wars was important to put all the pieces together.

GLOBE motivates professors and students to be on the top of Bloom’s taxonomy pyramid by promoting critical thinking, collaboration, evaluation and analysis of cases, and bring creativity and innovation to a new level of lifelong learning. Learning is not about grades and courses, learning is about using new knowledge to have a better world. Be a Global Learner!

Sharing GLOBE Resources

Initially this GLOBE Guide provides access to currently known global learning initiatives. As more global learning opportunities are found, they will be added organized by topics.

Behind GLOBE

Behind GLOBE is Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche, Professor of Supervision and Management at Florida State College at Jacksonville. He uses Global Learning Opportunities to enhance his Strategic Management, Information Systems, International Business, and Special Topics in Management courses.  He has been a world traveler for more than 40 years visiting more than 50 countries. Some of his trips have been for vacations and tourism while others have been for business, international affairs, World Scouting, Navy, TEDx or educational purposes. He has attended several international conferences and he has been speaker in some of them including IAEA International Conference on Nuclear Research Reactors in Germany, UNESCO Knowledge Communications in Venezuela, and several UNAD business, education, and technology conferences in Colombia.

His first trips to the US created the conditions to emigrate from Venezuela to be “American by Choice”. He became US citizen in 2006. His trips and engagement with local businesses, cultures, and history have shaped his business and educational activities. Global connections and collaborations have allowed him to work and volunteer in many countries including most of Latin America, Europe and Australia. He created GLOBE to share his global instructional resources, collect other global resources as part of FSCJ Global Engagement Committee and to provide a learning platform to collect and share global learning resources from fellow FSCJ professors, graduates, collaborators, and students.
