Creating a Diverse Telent Pipeline
A top priority for GlobalMindED is to increase access and opportunities to higher education and STEM-related courses and careers for first-generation students.
At the GlobalMindED conference, students start to prepare themselves for 21st century jobs as they develop the confidence to succeed. They learn professional skills, find internships, and form mentoring relationships that they take with them when the conference ends.
At the same time, professional attendees collaborate on innovative and impactful approaches to student and workplace success.
At GlobalMindED, we have core values that support our belief that a healthy education system breeds strong students, passionate individuals, valued educators, and a booming economy:
Improve Creativity, Innovation, and Risk in Classroom and Career
If we excite students and graduates to move out of their learning comfort zones, to push themselves harder to develop essential soft and hard career skills, to become adaptive and strategic thinkers who embrace change, they will be ready for the professional world regardless of where they went to post-secondary education or which career move they make first. Cultivating these skills will prepare students for success in the global marketplace.
Shift Learning Paradigms and Flip Classrooms
Today, students have the power to teach themselves. To motivate and inspire students, faculty must be both teacher and coach. They must facilitate a class by providing ample opportunity for students to prepare in advance and come to class ready to deepen their learning by working in pairs, triads, and groups. GlobalMindED will present sessions using the flipped-classroom model where attendees prepare ahead of time to encourage engagement, interactivity, and problem solving during the session.
Make Collaborative Connections with People from Around the World
Questioning, collaborating, connecting, sharing insights about successes and failures, and building better ideas and models define the GlobalMindED conference environment. At GlobalMindED, networks for personal and professional growth are born and nurtured.
