Short Session Description (one line):
Join us to learn about Global Encounters, an international student video conference program run by TakingITGlobal and the Centre for Global Education that explores global issues and challenges.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

TakingITGlobal and the Centre for Global Education presents: Global Encounters! This program program brings together students from across the world through live video conferences that explore global issues and the potential youth have to shape a better common future. The purpose of this workshop is to introduce participants to the purpose and methodology that drive this program, as well as the outcomes experienced among students who have taken part in the program. Participants will be taken through the processes that classes experience when participating in a videoconference, including the introduction to pre-conference curriculum in TIGed’s virtual classrooms, the collaborative work that takes place between students from all over the world, and the format of the conferences. Examples of past videoconferences, curriculum and guest speakers will be explored, including events related to the topics of HIV/AIDS, climate change, and astronomy. In order to get a tangible sense of the format and content of Global Encounters video conferences, the presentation will include an excerpt recording of a past event. Students who participate in Global Encounters walk away with a deeper understanding for the global issue at hand, a community of peers from around the world, and an appreciation of their potential as agents of change in their local and global communities. Join us to learn more!
