UPDATE: 3/18/20 We will meet over Zoom through the following link (additional Zoom details are listed below).
Join a new effort to foster conversations and connections among those on campus with interests in global/international/comparative education. All faculty, students, staff, etc. in the College of Education and beyond are welcome to attend and participate. Even if your research is primarily U.S.-based, please join us if you have an interest in thinking about issues in education globally. We are defining “global” broadly and hope that these conversations will include a broad range of voices and perspectives.
We’ve planned four meetings this semester and we welcome you all to attend any/all as you are able. Each time we meet, we’ll discuss a short article/report, podcast, or webinar pertaining to global education that is of interest to the group. Even if you’re unable able to listen/read beforehand, please come anyway!
