Flavia Iuspa


Globally competent people have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to understand and to find lasting solutions to global issues and problems using multiples perspectives. They understand interdependence and interconnectedness of the global systems, cultures and communicate effectively with different people around the world. The purpose of this paper is to discuss how an international online learning experience enhances our awareness of different perspectives and cultural diversity, the challenges facing humanity and the world, and our role as globally competent citizens. In particular, this paper discusses the design and implementation of an international online learning experience to promote global learning between two higher education students in the United States and Mexico. The paper uses global competency as the pedagogical framework for teaching and promoting global learning within the context of global competency.
