Being globally minded, culturally competent and socially responsible are some essential attributes for students to thrive in an increasingly interconnected world. While developing global citizenship is often placed high on the agenda for many higher education institutions around the world, there are still questions and issues worth exploring. For example, what makes a global citizen? How do we define global citizenship in our contexts? Can global citizenship be developed through a significant experiential learning experience? Or do we need a pathway to guide students steadily toward such a goal? In this Join-the-Conversation event, our three speakers from different institutions will share their approaches and practices while engaging the participants in further discussion.
