Winter 2024 Breakouts

Theme: Global Competence

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? For this Breakouts campaign, we invited contributions that illustrate global competencies in a way that is understandable and inspiring.
