Learn about how global and local partnerships for learning can help build students' global and intercultural competencies, as well as their ability to contribute to a more sustainable world as equity-minded global citizens. "Glocal" engagement programs founded in student-centered practices that emphasize advocacy and participation in all subjects and grade levels provide students with opportunities to learn from and with their global partners, to act on the basis of their learning without falling into a savior mentality, and to envision how a life of purpose and leadership might be crafted. This workshop will explore a variety of strategies for finding "glocal" partnerships for learning, for developing equitable learning experiences which foster proficiency in academic standards, and for building the kinds of deep learning experiences which humanize the world for students and foster the intercultural and problem-solving skills they need to become leaders of constructive change, both inside their local communities and in the world.
