Global Competence Workshop #1: Myths, Misconceptions, and Truths

Cultural competence, global competence, global learning, glocalization, and internationalization are some of the increasingly essential aspects in K-12 education nowadays. Global competence and global learning have been highlighted by the U.S. Department of Education’s International Strategy 2012-2016 as crucial skills that educators and students should possess: “It is no longer enough to focus solely on ensuring that students have essential reading, writing, mathematics, and science skills… In today’s globalized world, an effective domestic education agenda must address global needs and trends and aim to develop a globally competent citizenry.” In addition to the range of terms that have appeared, there are many myths and misconceptions that accompany those. With her many years of experience in promoting global competence and global learning across K-12 contexts, our esteemed presenter, Dr. Dawn Whitehead, will engage in interactive discussion and activities while addressing the myths, misconceptions, and truths associated with global competence and global learning nowadays.
