Global Education online conference. Opportunity for Global educators. As you read these lines, I am taking part on the Online Facilitation Unconference and it’s amazing. I am having the opportunity to do Ayni on line. As you know, Ayni is an act of reciprocity, in fact this blog is call Munayni which means reciprocity with love. Will write more about what i am learning in the Unconference, but right now, I want to share this information with the Global Educators and anyone else that has interest.
THE GLOBAL EDUCATION CONFERENCE
November 13th – 16th, 2017
The Global Education Conference (GEC) is a collaborative and world-wide community convening designed to increase opportunities for globally-connecting educators and programs significantly. It is free to attend and takes place entirely online.
Our primary event seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real-world problems. Through this conference, attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world.
This year, we have added new strands for the conference to expand our offerings. The new strands are the UN’s SDGs, Study Abroad and Exchange Programs, and Higher Education. The call for proposals is now open through November 1 and acceptances started rolling out August 1, 2017.
The Global Education Conference welcomes participants from all over the world and encourages submissions in any language. We provide training on the conference platform, Blackboard Collaborate, and advocate for presenters to take ownership of the presentation process when scheduling and promoting their sessions. We seek to elevate and empower presenters to share their knowledge with a global audience.
