Virtual Conference: Transforming Global Learning Practice: Time for Action – Oct 12-14

Posted by American Association of Colleges and Universities on July 26, 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 2022 Conference on Global Learning will explore ways to put this new framing into practice at institutions of all types. Conference sessions will focus on:

  • ensuring all learners participate in global learning
  • connecting global learning to careers and/or community engagement
  • designing and assessing global learning courses, curricula, and programs
  • situating DEI efforts within global contexts
  • focusing on global engagement in local settings
  • decolonizing global learning practice
  • integrating global learning outcomes into curricular and cocurricular experiences
  • providing global learning pathways from general education to the majors and/or professional programs
  • preparing students to process global threats to democracy
  • embedding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
