Call for Proposals: Transforming Global Learning Practice: Time for Action – Jun 13

Posted by American Association of Colleges & Universities on May 17, 2022

The field of global learning, like higher education more broadly, has undergone a necessary period of reflection amid recent social, economic, and public health crises. To address the uncomfortable realities that have been uncovered, educators across the United States and around the world are reframing global learning to emphasize the intentional inclusion of those who have been excluded; equitable and reciprocal forms of engagement; cultural readiness to facilitate meaningful interaction and learning; innovation and versatility in curricular design, and the situation of diversity, equity, and inclusion within global contexts.

While much has been gained from this reflection and reframing, it is now time for action. The will explore ways to put this new framing into practice at institutions of all types. You can help!

The American Association of Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) is now accepting proposals for presentations based upon the following topical tracks:

  • Intentional Alignment of Global Learning and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Innovation and Emerging Trends in Global Learning
  • Career and Cultural Readiness for Global Engagement
  • Civic Engagement in Global Contexts
  • Decolonization of Global Learning Practices and Experiences
  • Equity in Digital Global Learning
  • Educating for Democracy in a Global Context

The deadline for submissions is June 13.
