Event description

Description

Please join us for a day-long global citizenship certification course. The course examines what it means to be a global citizen and the knowledge, skills, and values that are needed to aid peaceful internationalization. Participants will explore their own perspectives and biases on cultural differences and how personal and societal prejudices inform student interactions and impact society. Through group discussion, role plays, and analysis, we will investigate the root of cultural misunderstandings and how to deescalate tensions, as well as how acceptance versus tolerance affect social norms and expectations. The course will help educators engage in topics that may be controversial to international students who come from a wide range of socioeconomic, educational, linguistic, and religious backgrounds.

INSTRUCTORS: Rachel Yee Quill, Academic Affairs, Instructional Design Specialist, Shore-light Education; and John A. Dahlstrand, Director of Student Services, Academic Accelerator Program, University of Kansas, and Director of Campus Relations, International University Alliance.

This event is sponsored by UOP International, the School of International Studies, and the Center for Teaching and Learning.
