Problem-based learning and group work have both been proposed as effective active learning methodologies. These two approaches were blended to promote internationalized learning in a non-majors biology class. This class was structured to draw attention to other nations and cultures within the framework of standard course objectives. In-class group work on specifically tailored case studies tied course content to issues of global relevance. The key objective is development of awareness on the impact of sociocultural, political, economic and historical factors on the state of the planet so as to foster reflection on the mitigation of human impacts for achieving sustainability in a culturally sensitive manner.
