What is a "global education?"

Mon Mar 14, 2011 10:04 am by rth2102

A global education - we all aspire to it. As teachers want to provide it, as students to receive it. We associate with "global education" all that desirable: the ideal of responsible "global citizens" capable to think (and act) both local and global, the values of tolerance and diversity, and visions of leadership for the challenges ahead.

What does "global …

What is a "global education?"

Sun Mar 27, 2011 9:42 am by Erica Kassman

A global education is not necessarily a set of facts or courses. As has already been said, it is a sense of open-mindedness, a willingly to acknowledge other possibility, to let the mind go beyond the present setting and to imagine other ways and other peoples. The culture in which you are raised, for better of for worse, endows you with a certain view of the world and how to operate in it. But …

How are education and service connected?

Mon Mar 14, 2011 4:16 pm by kristykelly

Columbia University has a longstanding history of community service and engagement. Service learning opportunities ideally allow students to connect classroom instruction with community activities to enhance reflective thinking as well as personal and civic responsibility. How do these connections change when learning or working "globally"?

1 INTERACT Conference: An Overview on Tue Mar 08, 2011 6:11 pm

Will Columbia change as much in the next 50 years as it has in any other half-century in its history? No doubt. Earlier drivers to change included such historical events as industrialization, shifts in global geopolitical power and the race to the moon. Our response was to increase scientific specialization, invent discipline-based departments, expand professional schools, adopt the Common Core, and create hundreds of centers and institutes – each in their own way designed to respond to both external and internal forces for change.

Today we have new global challenges to overcome – environmental degradation, poverty, and crises of capitalism, inequality, marginalization, ageing, and the future of cities. Columbia is ideally situated to study these issues, but more ambitiously, to apply its prestige and vast intellectual resources to pioneer a response.
The question is not if this university community will respond, but how.

For example, imagine Columbia 50 years from now, not located in one urban center, but simultaneously in eight or ten cities worldwide. Imagine our curriculum globally themed, students choose across a wide and still expanding spectrum of courses. Is it possible that students also choose where they study and in what language? Is it possible that what we study and how we learn is transformed in the process?

On April 20, in Low Library, the INTERACT Conference will bring together faculty and students across the university to ask these questions and consider not whether, but how Columbia will “go global."

Registration coming soon.
