October Symposium on Teaching and Learning

Stewardship in the Academy

Friday, October 30, 2015
9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Harned Hall 110
Saint Martin’s University

The theme for this year’s symposium is inspired by the Benedictine value of Community Living, referring to the idea that we become who we are by our relationships with others.

Saint Martin’s University invites educators from local colleges and universities to a conversation about the role of academia in the global community. We are thrilled to announce that our colleagues from Reitaku University will be coming from Japan to join us for this conversation and to present their work at the symposium.


You can participate in one or more ways:

  1. Attend the presentations
  2. Giving a 20-minute individual presentation
  3. Participate on a panel

All presentations should focus on the symposium theme in its broad sense. Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Examples of teaching concepts and practices of global citizenship
  • Institutional issues related to the global reach of universities
  • Engaging in scholarship and collaborating beyond national borders
  • Theoretical work that unpacks the notion of "global community"
  • Research, curricular, or program development ideas related to the topic, etc.

We encourage you to explore and share your vision of the academy as a community beyond geographical boundaries and to reflect on who we are through our relationships with scholars across the globe.
