Julie Lindsay posted these essential questions on our discussion forum:
- Lindsay (2016) talks about being an “Outlier”, a characteristic of creative innovators (p.263), do you agree?
- Are the new generation better in collaboration?
- Considering your educational institution, what are the enablers to incorporating global learning in the curriculum?
- Consider your school/educational context, identify the barriers that may prevent your educational institution from incorporating global learning and how might you overcome these barriers (solutions)?
- From the colloquium presentation, are there any specific action items you think you could employ in your practice now to facilitate flat connected learning, global education, online global collaboration?
