Adjusting the sails for international cooperation and global education: best practices in maximizing faculty and student engagement within international cooperation projects and global education initiatives (E)

Track: Sailing Globally

As colleges and institutes continue to navigate the pandemic, it has become evident that engaging faculty and students in transformative experiences within international cooperation projects and global education requires a new blend of strategies, supports, and skills. This session will review challenges and successful strategies with engaging students and faculty and provide an opportunity for participants to share their experiences sailing a changed global context. By using new and creative ways to engage and support students and faculty in meaningful global learning our college has successfully grown our internationalization efforts. Our approach is to inspire our students to be interculturally competent and globally aware through immersive international experiences and invest in our faculty to be leaders in building global networks. “Durham College’s approach ensures that our community excels as they live and work in the global economy, making effective and meaningful contributions to society while harnessing innovation to help solve societal challenges at home and abroad” (Durham College International and Global Education Strategic Plan, 2020).
