Full Session Description (as long as you would like):  
Most global educators have a challenging relationship with the “Fs of Global Education.” The Fs, which include cultural facets like Food, Festivals, Flags and Fashion, are those elements of culture we can see most easily. There’s nothing wrong with exploring the observable aspects of culture, of course, but staying there can create superficial learning experiences, even leading to cultural misrepresentation and stereotypical assumptions about other cultures.  This session will offer practical strategies for using the Fs as an entry point for investigations and engagement which dig beneath the surface and develop a more nuanced sense of culture for students.
