Pre-Conference Opportunity! GSL 101

September 23, 2019

International education, service-learning, and community-based global learning programs are robust with potential. They can positively impact communities, grow civil society networks, and have transformative effects for students who become more globally aware and more engaged in global civil society—at home and abroad. Yet such programs are also packed with peril. Clear evidence indicates that poor implementation of such programming can have negative impacts on vulnerable persons while cementing stereotypes and reinforcing patterns of privilege and exclusion. These dangers can be mitigated, however, through collaborative planning, design, and evaluation that advances mutually beneficial community partnerships, critically reflective practice, thoughtful facilitation, and creative use of resources. This workshop, delivered by a team representing diverse institutional types as well as on- and off-campus experience, will familiarize participants with best practices in community-campus pedagogy and partnerships for global learning at home and abroad.

Spaces are disappearing; register now, and stay for the entire 6th Global Service-Learning Summit at Clemson University from November 3 – 5.
