Workshop 

A6. Global Education in Higher Education

In the last two decades, Global Education has also moved from the margin to the mainstream in Higher Education. Previously the preserve of very specific disciplines (Geography, Sociology, Education) it has now burgeoned, both as a focus within professional clusters (“Global Education for Engineers/Health professional”, etc.) and within the core mission of some Universities. But is it Global Education? And what does it mean to prepare students to become global citizens? How are universities doing it? What and how are students learning? This workshop aims at discussing some of these issues based on experience and research.
