Truth and Dare: A Call for Accountability and Action in Higher 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.

Closing Plenary
Global Perspectives on Reimagined Global Learning

How is global learning being reimagined in different contexts? How should the inclusion of reimagination from different national, cultural, and/or institutional perspectives influence global learning practices and strategies on your campus? The panelists will offer different perspectives on reimagining global learning and discuss the challenges and advantages we face as we reimagine global learning and integrate more global conceptions.
