Winter 2024 Theme: Global Competencies

The development of global competencies is often positioned as a value of virtual exchange. But what are global competencies? How can we communicate about them in a way that excites people to use virtual exchange to foster global competency development? We’re inviting contributions that illustrate global competencies in a way that is understandable and inspiring. Pitches should position global competencies in a way that anyone can grasp, focusing on human-centered, real-world examples and using language that is conversational and inviting.
