From Diane Pearson, Social Science Division and Global Studies Faculty…
The Global Pedagogy Symposium will be held at St. Cloud State U on Feb. 28 and March 3. The deadline for proposals for breakout sessions or for participating in a poster session is Feb. 1.
I know there are probably other faculty out there in different disciplines at MCTC who have teaching and learning experiences related to GLobal Ed that might like to share at this event. I know there are faculty who might be interested in attending if they know that this event is happening.
P.S. FYI: MnSCU is going to create a new annual Award for Excellence in International/Global Education.
