AAC&U 2018 Global Engagement and Spaces of Practice
Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U)
This year’s Global Engagement and Spaces of Practice conference will consider how educators are using place-based disciplinary and interdisciplinary inquiry to focus and integrate learning across a variety of geographic, cultural, and philosophical domains to engage students in issues that matter to them and to society. Participants will share how they are connecting institutional leadership with curricular and cocurricular options to ensure that all students experience global learning, using place as a lens through which to understand the world. They will examine how these campus-wide approaches can become part of the institutional fabric, and how faculty and staff are prepared, supported, and rewarded to provide students with opportunities to apply their skills in a variety of settings, at increasingly challenging levels.
