Session Descriptions

From International Learning to Global Citizenship

What is the difference between international learning and global citizenship? The difference is intentional experiences that translate into further action. Developing global citizens requires theoretical foundation, applied learning, and identification of transferrable skills. In this workshop, we will discuss intercultural and global competencies and how they can be developed alongside disciplinary learning goals in campus courses and study abroad courses.
