Title: Supporting a Continuum of Global Learning: Bridging High School & Higher Education



In what ways can educators and administrators in the field of education abroad collaborate to establish a more robust network of global learning opportunities in high school and higher education? Why is this continuum important, particularly through the lens of advancing diversity and equity in the field? This community discussion will explore some potential answers to these questions through good practice programming examples. Join us for an engaging conversation and experience sharing with professionals from K12 to higher education.
