Conference Organizers 



The Global Education Forum, co-sponsored by Asia Society and Penn GSE, was held on October 16 and 17 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The conference was an opportunity to engage in a critical conversation between K–12 and higher education educators about how best to prepare students for a global world. Attracting educators from around the world to discuss best practices, promising programs and research, the Global Education Forum highlighted the importance of learning with and from different education systems to help inform our own practice.

Through a series of interactive formats, participants explored how to prepare students to be globally competent, reviewed trends and best practices in teacher and leadership development, and developed strategies for teaching and assessing critical 21st century skills.
