The GLLab Assessment Center Approach to Developing Global Competency

Tuesday December 13, 2016, 1:00 – 2:00 pm Eastern time

Presenter: Joyce Osland, San Jose State University

This is Webinar #4 in:

Putting Intercultural Learning Into Action in Study Abroad Programs

(A series of four webinars focusing on how to use applied theory to generate effective ‘best practices.’

Joyce Osland, Ph.D., teaches global leadership courses at San Jose State University and consults with global businesses and non-profits on global competency development and assessment. In 2008, she founded the Global Leadership Lab (GLLab), which functions like an assessment center, and also began researching the impact of its innovative teaching methods on student performance. The GLLab has educated over 900 students using a battery of assessment instruments, sophisticated simulations, feedback and coaching. The GLLab is also a component of the co-curricular Global Leadership Passport Program founded in 2009 for students across campus who want to prepare themselves for a global career, which includes study abroad programs and pre-departure training. Dr. Osland will explain how these two programs, both the first of their kind, complement the study abroad experience and enhance intercultural learning.
