Educating for Global Competence

Educating for Global Competence centered on how and why we need to educate our students to take on a greater presence on the global stage. More and more complex issues have arisen over time and there is a greater need for great minds to solve these problems ~ Clean drinking water, mass migration, climate instability and world peace are a few of the global issues facing us. All these require critical and higher-order thinking to solve. A complete transcript of this chat may be found here.

This week’s chat was scheduled at a different time to see if this would affect attendance. It did! Our next chat will be back to the regular schedule!
