DESIGNING AND ASSESSING INTERCULTURAL LEARNING

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2020 //  CHICAGO, IL // HOSTED BY LAKE FOREST ACADEMY

Join the GEBG community for an in-depth look at evolving research, engaging questions, and exemplary school models around developing and implementing global curricula in our schools.

  • Are you leading curricular initiatives, working to integrate global competencies or global citizenship education into classrooms at your school? 
  • Are you exploring new and innovative ways to generate student-driven learning with a global focus, preparing them for a more interconnected world? 
  • Are you looking for tools and models to assess intercultural competence–in students and faculty? 
  • Are you thinking strategically about how students practice global competencies year after year, culminating in key demonstrations of learning? 
  • Are you interested to hear about how other schools use creative program-design to maximize learning–from mini-mesters to diploma programs?
  • Are you exploring ways to bring academic focus and credit to global travel programs, or ways to bring global experiential education into the education of all your graduates in a cost-effective way?

This one-day summit will feature both break-out sessions on specific topics as well as feature presentations from school leaders and university researchers–including leaders from the Center for Intercultural Learning, Mentorship, Assessment, and Research at Purdue University who will share about their leading work in the field of intercultural assessment and their curation of practical, free tools!
