Reimagining Global Learning

The COVID-19 pandemic and the growing movement for racial justice have affirmed the interconnectedness of the local and the global as never before and have revealed the reality of global interdependence. To meet this moment and ensure students are prepared for future changes, this panel will explore the ways in which global learning is being reimagined to reflect the realities exposed during the global health pandemic and the global racial reckoning and to prepare students for work, life, and citizenship in connected world.
