As the leadership of TESOL and NAFSA have pointed out, In the face of challenging times it is important for us to remember why we do what we do and to live up to our ideals of a global professional community. Our society and our world desperately need people who can bridge divides. It is crucial that we stay actively engaged with and continue to learn from people of other countries and cultures.
With that in mind, I invite you to join me on Tuesday, November 15th for a webinar titled Building Bridges Through Intercultural Communication. This talk is part of the four-day, online Global Education Conference.
This conference goes around the clock for four days, beginning on Sunday, November 13th. This is not a conference solely for English language teachers. The general focus is in connecting teachers and students from around the world, often using various forms of digital communication. There are many presentations from classroom teachers who enjoy using technology to set up international educational exchanges. Others are on study abroad. But the overall emphasis is how those from around the world can work cooperatively and collaboratively to improve global understanding.
My talk is about ways we can improve intercultural communication. You can find a fuller description here: http://bit.ly/2eNztVq. It will take place on Tuesday, November 15th at 12:00 EST, which is 17:00 GMT
