Organizations today are thinking differently about what it means to work. The global economy has greatly influenced this change in thought because exchanges by air, by sea and through technology serve to eliminate barriers that once existed. Physical location, language, culture and currency are all starting to become less difficult to navigate, yet their unique qualities remain important to acknowledge. As such, it is essential that educators explore the future of work so they can better prepare students to thrive in our more interconnected workforce.
This symposium will bring community college educators together with business and academic leaders to learn about the future of work within the context of the global economy. Through engaging interactive breakout sessions, educators will gain knowledge and skills on how to incorporate global teaching and learning that will prepare students to thrive in a global workforce post-graduation. This program is designed for community college instructors of all disciplines, as well as administrators and staff.
