【第4回】緊急ウェビナー・シリーズ「新型コロナ禍と国際教育」 Special Webinar Series: “What can we do? International education during the Covid-19 pandemic”

【第4回】コロナ禍と地球市民教育の課題
Series IV : The Covid-19 pandemic and an agenda for global citizenship education
5月21日(木)Thursday, May 21st  10:30-11:50

国境を越える留学交流が大きな制限を受ける中で、既存の国際教育プログラムは大きな転換点を迎えています。本ウェビナーでは、国際教育、異文化理解教育、地球市民教育、国際理解教育、開発教育の本来の意義を再確認するとともに、変容する社会情勢の中にあって、国際教育に携わる私たちがどのように新しい目標を提示することができるのか、を議論していきます。

Student mobility will substantially slow down due the covid-19 pandemic. In this webinar, we revisit the value of international education, intercultural education, global citizenship education, education for international understanding and development education. Also, the participants will be invited to discuss how we can establish a productive agenda for future international educational exchange which reflects the fundamental post covid-19 changes.
