Education About Global Development. International Conference Report and Interpretation.
Management Inst. for National Development, New York, NY.
Conference participants, reflecting the views of 15 different countries and representing both education and the broader community, gathered to discuss education about global development. The conference theme concerned educational reform in industrialized countries and the need for global awareness of the interdependence of all societies. The conference first considered two key themes: What Is A World-Minded Individual? and What Is A World-Minded Institution? Examples of internationalizing education in four countries--Sweden, Poland, France, and the United States--were then discussed. Group sessions concentrated on teaching in a global and development framework, institutional support for such teaching, and the need for society as a whole to help such teaching occur. This summary report of the conference includes a statement on behalf of the participants urging continued exchange of knowledge for the internationalizing of education and a description of the conference proceedings under the headings National Perspectives, Interdependence-Responsibility-Urgency, and Conference Interpretations. A list of conference-related documents and of conference participants is included. (JH)
