Lucy: thanks for the heads-up, and I just posted it on the front page.  Thanks for helping to spread this announcement!

Brad, why don't you post this as a discussion forum post on the front page, so the entire community can see it? I can also then send it out over social media.

The State of Global Education:

Learning with the World and its People

Edited by Brad Maguth & Jeremy Hilburn

This book, to be published by Routledge, will include peer-reviewed manuscripts of research on ways in which teachers and students learn about and with the world and its people. The purpose of this book is two-fold: to explore the theoretical foundations of global education, and to initiate a conversation to begin to answer the question, what are the characteristics of the next generation of global education? We broadly call this next generation, Global Education 2.0.  The text will be divided into three sections:

  • Global Education 1.0 – Foundations - This section presents an overview of foundational research conducted in the area of global education so readers can better understand the rationale, opportunities, and challenges that have faced the field of global education.


  • Global Education 2.0 in Theory - This section presents research that sets a future path for global education in an increasingly technological, multicultural, and global age. Research in this section could center on ways in which global education can be reconstructed and strengthened.  Potential topics include research connecting issues of race/ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class, to teaching and learning about and with the world and its people.


  • Global Education 2.0 in Action - This section presents research on the practices of global education and offers a view of what the next generation of global education may look like in action. This could include the following: research that’s centered on students learning about and with the world and its people, global  issues (in school and out of school), the ways in which a global perspective enhances students’ ability to serve as stewards of their planet, and practices that foster global learning and global action to help build a sustainable and more equitable future for all citizens of our planet. Research topics may also include research on the meaningful integration of technology to help students learn about and with the world and its people, or other meaningful global learning opportunities.

I am an English professor at a small community college in southern Maine, US., looking for online collaborative possibilities for my students with Middle Eastern students.

This could be for my college composition class or a literature class.

Greetings. I am interested in connecting with higher ed folks who are working with pre-service teachers. I am wondering what some of your projects are with global education and how you are implementing global education in your courses.

You are invited to have your students participate in the 2012 Global Enterprise Experience, April 26 - May 17. They will be a member of a global team with eight colleagues coming from diverse countries – rich and poor, big and small, and with world views that are worlds apart.  The global teams jointly develop a business case for a profitable product or service to link developed and developing countries. The contest is free to enter on www.geebiz.org.  Judged by global leaders, members of the champion team as well as the top participant each win NZ$1000.  For more details see www.geebiz.org.”
