Developing Global Citizens: Enhancing the Student Experience through Embedded Support and Academic Services
As education institutions start to recognise the important developmental role of support and academic services, they are also starting to look for ways to embed these services within the curriculum and student experience. More and more, institutions need to find ways of developing students who are globally engaged and competent; students who recognise their parts as global citizens. The 2012 conference explores the concept of global citizenship for our students, and discusses ways in which support and academic services can be part of that developmental processes.
More and more, global mobility, academic learning services, student transition, student volunteering and global internships are seen as crucial to the student experience. Arguably, these services should no longer be seen as support services but central to student development, and should be embedded in the curriculum. We welcome papers, workshops and discussions around how educational institutions can achieve this lofty aim.
