February 4th, 2:45-4:15 EST – The Toolkit: An Open Access Teaching and Learning Resource for Civic and Global Learning Presenter / Facilitators: Samantha Brandauer – Associate Provost and Executive Director of the Center for Global Study and Engagement, Dickinson College and Eric Hartman – Executive Director of the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship, Haverford College

Session description: In the spring of 2020, as COVID-19 forced international educators to start asking larger questions about the future of international education and global learning with limited student mobility, two small liberal arts colleges in Pennsylvania and the membership of a network of higher education institutions and community organizations started reimagining the future of global learning.  Together we started to develop open-access, online teaching materials – An Interdependence Toolkit. What drove us was our collective commitment to building just, inclusive and sustainable communities, a spirit of collaboration and a desire to seek out future-forward and innovative opportunities for continued global learning. Through a series of co-created modules interweaving topics like sustainability, structural violence and racism, participatory research, and fair trade learning – teachers and learners are asked to grapple with our interdependence and its implication for global solidarity and local actions.
