In the International Network of Universities (INU) 20th year, the INU Intercultural Learning Through Global Engagement (ILGE) Conference was launched in March, hosted by Universitas Katolik Parahyangan in Bandung, Indonesia.
The 2nd ILGE conference will now be held at Malmö University September 30, 2019. The conference allows staff and students a platform to share approaches to intercultural learning through global engagement. The INU members will present short films on intercultural learning, and in designated workshop sessions, participants will set future directions and activities of interest in pursuing advancement of intercultural learning and global competence.
Emphasizing the importance of developing intercultural competencies through higher education the conference brings together students, theorists, practitioners, researchers in the area of intercultural learning. We will be inspired by the UNESCO chair professor Charles Hopkins, Darla K. Deardorff, Executive Director Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA), professor John Dirkx and professor Craig Shealy throughout the day.
The purpose of this initiative is to identify intercultural learning resources and best practices with ultimate goal to help each other in equipping future generations with skills for living and working in a globalized world while also applying those skills in a local context.
We would like to invite you, colleagues and students, that are interested to contribute and have an impact on advancing intercultural learning through global engagement. Please find the program and information about the speakers enclosed.
