How are globally competent students different?
They are curious learners and complex thinkers. They apply multi-disciplinary knowledge to understand pressing issues of our time and seek solutions. They recognize diverse perspectives and look to grow as part of a global society. In the process, they discover themselves and the role they might play in our communities and the wider world.
Why does global competence matter?
Our local and global communities are increasingly diverse and interconnected. Our learners will need the skills and cultural competence to navigate society with success. Global competency allows for the development of greater empathy as well as an understanding of the complexities that arise in living among diverse perspectives and ways of life. Simply, global competence makes a better world!
What does global competence look like in the language classroom?
Global competence is more than cultural awareness. It is the ability to grow one's worldview as a part of the second language program and recognize the worldview of others. Students will use language skills to investigate the world, ask questions that require them to contemplate diverse perspectives, connect with people and organizations around the globe, and develop a sense of self as part of a global society.
