"Transforming Global Learning Practice: Time for Action" AAC&U Conference on Global Learning

October 12-14 online

Global learning has undergone a necessary period of reflection amid recent social, economic, and public health crises. To address the uncomfortable realities that have been uncovered, educators around the world are reframing global learning.

The AAC&U's 2022 Conference on Global Learning will explore ways to put this new framing into practice at institutions of all types.

Conference sessions will focus on:

  • Ensuring all learners participate in global learning
  • Connecting global learning to careers and/or community engagement
  • Designing and assessing global learning courses, curricula, and programs
  • Situating DEI efforts within global contexts
  • Focusing on global engagement in local settings
  • Decolonizing global learning practice
  • Integrating global learning outcomes into curricular and cocurricular experiences
  • Providing global learning pathways from general education to the majors and/or professional programs
  • Preparing students to process global threats to democracy
  • Embedding the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
