Summary

Join this diverse group of global education experts—practitioners, leaders and policy experts—from around the world for a panel discussion on why global education matters—and why it doesn’t. As the PISA tests move toward inclusion of global competence as a domain on the 2018 test, what are the implications and applications across states and countries? The group will examine trends impacting global education, effective strategies for embedding global competence into teaching and learning systems, what conditions make embracing global education most successful and the barriers experienced by practitioners and policymakers across geographies.
