Adding global skills to course content can help community colleges meet goals of diversity, equity, and inclusion while simultaneously training highly skilled employees ready to work in a global environment. This session, appropriate for community college technical faculty as well as administrators, will provide an overview of how to align the learning goals of technical programs with international workforce needs and how to start integrating global content into what is already being taught in courses. Internationalization begins with understanding your students’ diverse experiences and this interactive workshop will also introduce tools to integrate student experience and learning into classes.
Bring a syllabus that you would like to internationalize with you.
