Educational Exchange and Global Competence. International Conference on Educational Exchange (46th, Washington, D.C., November 1993).
Council on International Educational Exchange, New York, NY.
This booklet presents the highlights of the 46th International Conference on Educational Exchange including the texts of three speeches given at the Conference. Conference sessions addressed global competence from the perspective of international exchanges, various professions, and the formal educational system, as well as the relation of global competence to general education for citizenship, diversity and multiculturalism, the training of specialists and teachers, and language studies. The first presentation by Richard D. Lambert, Director Emeritus of the National Foreign Language Center, examined five components of global competence: knowledge, empathy, approval, foreign language competence, and task performance. This was followed by a presentation from Richard Riley, U.S. Secretary of Education, that briefly highlighted government's role in fostering international education and acknowledged the efforts of the Council on International Educational Exchange in developing international understanding beyond the traditional European nations. The final presentation was delivered by Charles J. Ping, President of Ohio University. It focused on international education and educational change from the university's perspective. (GLR)
