Invitation

You are invited to share your scholarship and best practices at the 2018 Global Learning in Agriculture Conference (#GLAG18). The mission of the Global Learning Conference in Agriculture is to create space for innovation and collaboration in developing global learning opportunities throughout the K-20 education continuum. 

Core values of the conference include:
1) Purposeful, meaningful global learning can occur on and off campus.
2) There should be coordination from all levels of agricultural education to ensure maximum student growth on the global competency continuum. We look to enhance partnerships between secondary and post-secondary agricultural education efforts.

Submission deadline

5:00 PM, November 15, 2017

How?

Participants have two options for dissemination of their innovation and research: synchronous or asynchronous. You may select both and allow the conference organizing committee to find the most appropriate outlet for your participation.

Asynchronous Presentations
The asynchronous session will be conducted via the VoiceThread platform. (Note: Technical assistance will be provided to all who request it to access this free platform). Selected participants will be asked to provide their “digital poster” and accompanying video/audio recording segments explaining the poster by January 5, 2018. Each asynchronous presentation will have its own link that conference attendees can visit and leave voice or text comments. Presenters are encouraged to respond to attendee comments.


Synchronous Presentations
Presentations will occur synchronously during the conference sessions using the technology platform of Adobe Connect. (Note: Each selected participant will be provided an assigned technology mentor to assist with this platform). Presenters will have 10 minutes to share their research and/or best practices in global learning. A question and answer period between presenters and attendees will be moderated upon completion of all presentation in the session.


What?


Abstracts are asked to fall within one of the two topic areas:

Global Experiences - How can international  immersion experiences facilitate student understanding of the global agricultural system?


Global Learning - How can instructors facilitate global learning on campuses and in classrooms without “leaving home”?

When?


Asynchronous Presentations
The asynchronous presentations will be released beginning on January 22nd. This schedule will allow attendees to view the asynchronous presentations each day during the conference week.


Synchronous Presentations
Presentations will occur during the Global Learning in Agriculture Conference on Friday, January 26th, 1:00 - 5:00 PM EST.

Who?

Anyone passionate about global engagement in agriculture is encouraged to submit. All levels of educators are welcome (secondary and post-secondary). This is a non-discipline specific, unbiased sharing of scholarship of research and creative accomplishment and scholarship of teaching and learning.
