Transforming Global Learning Practice: What Has Changed?

After a necessary period of reflection amid recent social, economic, and public health crises, global learning as a field has changed, and our practices are changing. This opening plenary will explore how the field is evolving, how practices can become more inclusive, and how previously muted and marginalized voices can be amplified.

Taking Action for Equitable Global Learning for All

We have spent the past few years reflecting on global learning for today’s learners to meet the contemporary realities faced by students and societies across the globe. In this session, the panelists will explore the action taken in their diverse institutional contexts to make global learning more equitable for all. They will discuss their success and challenges as they worked to take meaningful action to expand participation and full engagement with global learning.
