Gateway Faculty Toolkit

The Gateway Toolkit is a free resource for faculty members planning and directing education abroad programs. Gateway’s Education Abroad Faculty Toolkit will offer an array of pedagogically-sound instructional activities that can be integrated in education abroad courses. It complements university administrative and logistical services by offering a portfolio of tested and applicable instructional strategies to optimize academic learning and the development of global citizenship.


The Gateway Toolkit has been designed with two primary focus areas, Global Citizenship and Academic Development. Specific course objectives have been written for each focus area and are supported by an array of instructional tools that can either be integrated into course syllabi or facilitated as one-time activities.


Each tool is explained in a one-page document that provides a brief description of the tool, noting its objectives, materials need, and recommended method of evaluation. Faculty members are invited to adapt selected tools to align with the course objectives and international context of the program. Each tool is supported with a student handout and/or related instructions document.


Additionally, scales to measure global citizenship and academic development are provided.
