Summary

This core conversation will focus on the concept of international-mindedness as it relates to learner preparedness for an increasingly globalized community. With our ever-shrinking global community, it is more important than ever for learners to understand diverse global contexts. All too often, however, educators are unsure where to start, particularly when working with highly homogenous student bodies. This conversation will explore the ways in which educators, together with their students, can focus on an understanding of their own global contexts. Participants will be asked to develop a preliminary understanding of their own personal international-mindedness through brief activities.
