Abstract/Description

Kennedy Union 331

Global learning is such an important focus at UD but is sometimes difficult to operationalize. This conversation will focus on practical learnings and strategies from bringing the world into the classroom and for taking the classroom into the world. The three conversation leaders, from both CAS and SBA have had many opportunities to accompany UD students abroad and teach international students. They have also brought experiential learning into their classrooms here at UD that give students more practical knowledge and insight into being conscious of their call to global citizenship. While a starting point will be the leaders’ experiences in India, China, Ghana, Togo, Italy and at the Mexico/US border, we hope attendees will share their experiences and most effective practices for encouraging global citizenship. We also intend to create a list of resources and ideas that are shared to distribute after the session.
