Global Learning and Ethics

Thursday October 3, 2013 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Omni Providence Hotel
One West Exchange Street
Providence, RI 02903

What are the ethical dilemmas that students, faculty, and graduates face in a multicultural college and workplace?  What is the meaning of global citizenship and the scope of global responsibility? Participants will consider some of the concrete forms that these ethical questions take for students, faculty, and administrators who are committed to weaving global learning throughout their courses and programs.  Participants will be asked to share their primary interests and grouped accordingly to discuss issues of central concern to their work in the liberal arts and sciences.  Examples of such issues might include cultures and languages across the curriculum, strategies for combining online and face-to-face education across permeable boundaries, faculty career and academic advising, and study abroad civic engagement.
