Cultural Dialogues - Change is in the air

Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
White Hall
Room 200

Our 16 International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) scholars will be presenting Cultural Dialogues during the month of February. Their assignment this year, Change is in the Air, will continue the theme used in October for the Saudi Arabian teachers’ Cultural Dialogues. In Saudi Arabia and in the U.S., we are experiencing social, political and educational changes. It will be interesting for all to learn what is happening in Morocco, Malaysia, Mexico, Uganda, Tanzania and Senegal as well as Bangladesh and The Philippines. The issues of immigration and migration, changing attitudes about multiculturalism (negative and positive), political conservatism and nationalism, and the role of fake news in democracies will be considered as part of these noon-time presentations.
