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

May 31, 2018 | Philadelphia, PA

Innovative technological advances (e.g. machine-learning, biogenomics, and renewable energy) provide potential solutions to 21st century challenges, but must be developed with an understanding of the ways in which these technologies may affect changing populations and social structures. 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 develop global competencies and cross-cultural communication skills to address these unprecedented opportunities and challenges. Experts will provide insights on how to equip students with a greater ability to think creatively and approach complex, interconnected global problems with more holistic understanding that meets the growing demand for broad-based skills in the world and the marketplace.


  • Integrating STEAM’D education to address complex global issues
