I spoke at an international workshop today for teachers and educational leaders, sponsored by Vietnam National University’s University of Education. Topic: Creating Globally Competent Citizens in Cross-Cultural Perspective. It was a variation on one of the themes of my co-authored book chapter (see previous posting) with a focus on global citizenship education – obstacles and opportunities. A Vietnamese translation of the chapter is available.
If you are interested in the topics of intercultural competence, global competence and global citizenship, how they intersect and how they relate to patriotism and nationalism, please let me know.
