About the webinar
This session was the kick-off for a new series by The Forum on Education Abroad called Global Learning Across the Disciplines (GLxD). In this session, participants joined the presenters in experience that demonstrated an interactive, collaborative pedagogical strategy that can be used immediately in their work. In unpacking the activity, participants will induce robust global learning outcomes and discuss ways in which these outcomes can be enacted in courses and activities.
Faculty program leaders, onsite directors, academic department heads and others working with faculty and academic units to strengthen curriculum integration of global learning in local and global contexts.
