A Community of Learning & Practice:

Global Competence

The UNESCO report acts as a catalyst for change, emphasizing the need to “build a new social contract for education through millions of individual and collective acts – acts of courage, leadership, resistance, creativity, and care…need(ed) to overcome discrimination, marginalization, and exclusion”(UNESCO, 2021, p. 5). In response, One World’s Global Competence COLP focuses on how global competency is being taught in different academic settings around the world.

The 2022 cohort surveyed participants to understand the depth and breadth of current global competency instructional practices, specifically inquiring about the future of global competency in relation to exponential change and globalization, and engaged in dialogue to develop a comprehensive and diverse toolbox of lessons, research material, and professional development components shared through a file sharing platform uplifting virtual collaboration and communication.
