Global Teaching: | Encouraging Students to Transcend Borders and Care about the World

Presenter(s):
Dr. Hilary Kahn, Director of the Center for the Study of Global Change, Indiana University
Description:
# Teaching globally demands that faculty embrace a newer definition of knowledge, one in which knowledge does not emerge from singular sources or individual experts, but rather is a process that involves interconnections, plurality, collaboration, and collective engagement.

Classrooms must be envisioned as nodes in a global network, where students, faculty, and the world are in continuous dialogue. In these globalized classrooms, knowledge develops through multiple perspectives, by breaking down borders (whether national, disciplinary, or ideological), and by forging connections and commitments to the world, oneself, and one's community.

This presentation will introduce this collective and critical approach to global teaching and learning.
