Keynote Address
The Power and Perils of Interdisciplinary Education and Global Engagement

Boundary-expanding approaches to teaching and learning—such as experiential education, interdisciplinary degrees/certificates, and an institutional embrace of global learning—hold great power. At the same time, integrating learning across geographic, cultural, philosophical, and professional domains can have unintended negative outcomes for students, communities, and even fields of study. Using global health as a case study, this keynote will explore approaches to understanding and avoiding the perils of global engagement and interdisciplinary education while unlocking the power of these modalities. "Let the World Change You" is the tagline that drives Dr. Evert's research, thought leadership, and advocacy. We invite you to join us for this essential discussion on walking the talk of our commitment as educators.

Closing Plenary
Where Is the University? Thoughts on Place, Thinking, and Thinking in Place

In his plenary, Professor Kingwell will ask: Where are the places of learning and thinking at colleges and universities? Is global learning situated in the same places? What are the barriers and apertures to learning in those places? What has changed, and what is the same, when we consider the challenges of global learning as educators and scholars? Based on years of experience in higher education, Professor Kingwell will combine theoretical reflections with personal outreach and in-reach experiences. He will conclude by stating that there is an urgent need for us to rethink the relationship between place and thinking.
