Global Learning Colloquium: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and Design (STEAM’D)

Annual Conference & ExpoNAFSA 2018 Call for Proposals

High Impact Learning & Innovative Approaches to 21st Century Challenges - Registration opens in early 2018

Thursday, May 31, 2018 | Philadelphia, PA

Interdisciplinary technological advances (e.g. machine-learning, biogenomics, and renewable energy) provide solutions to 21st century challenges. Understanding how these cross-disciplinary collaborations are changing responses to issues that transcend borders and eventually the evolution of populations and social structures is critical.

This colloquium will provide examples of how high-impact global learning approaches can be integrated throughout Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics, and Design (STEAM’D) education to address these unprecedented opportunities and challenges. Experts will provide insights on how to equip students with a greater ability to think holistically and creatively in their approach to solving complex, interconnected global problems.
