Mapping the Global Dimension within teaching and learning
Byrne, Edmond P.
GDEE (eds.), Global Dimension in Engineering Education, Barcelona.
This chapter attempts to map the Global Dimension of engineering within the academic setting and hence provide some pointers as to how academics can incorporate Global Dimension perspectives and capacities into engineering programmes. It takes its cue (both in terms of defining the Global Dimension and in framing the problem of Global Dimension incorporation) from the Engineers Against Poverty publication "The Global Engineer: Incorporating global skills within UK higher education of engineers" (Bourne and Neal, 2008), and proceeds to propose some possible interventions. For this reason, this chapter should be read in conjunction with the above mentioned publication, which is available online.
