Posted by PHENND on September 8, 2020

The Community-based Global Learning Collaborative, the Pennsylvania Council for International Education, and the Philadelphia Higher Education Network for Neighborhood Development are cooperating to support a series of fall events designed to deepen understanding of local inclusivity and its relationship with global processes and understanding. Join us for this free, discursive webinar.

September 25, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. EST: What NOT to Restart – and Opportunities Moving Forward: Global Engagement Post-COVID (Jackline Oluoch Aridi, East Africa Regional Research Program Manager, Kellogg Institute for International Studies, University of Notre Dame; Ramaswami Balasubramaniam, Medical Doctor, Distinguished Visiting Professor at Cornell, Harvard, and other Universities, Founder, Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement; Martin Punaks, International Development and Child Protection Consultant)

Since the turn of the last century, higher education institutions have been touting global engagement and global experiences as important institutional offerings that build 21st Century skills. As the COVID-19 pandemic slows international trade and travel around the world, global educators must pause to ask: What have we learned and what should we avoid moving forward? Finally, how might we build better structures and programs toward the communities and the world we aim to co-construct in the years to come?
