WPR’s “Here on Earth” to Discuss “Global Competence” during International Education Week

November 17, 2009

What is global competence? Can you learn it? How do you know when you have it?

Here on Earth: Radio without Borders, Wisconsin Public Radio’s daily call-in program about all things international, will tackle the notion of “global competence” in its broadcast on Tuesday, November 17 at 3pm (rebroadcast each evening at 9pm).

The broadcast comes during International Education Week, a program of the U.S. Departments of State and Education.

Appearing with host Jean Ferraca will be: Professor Fernando Reimers, Ford Foundation Professor of International Education and Director of Global Education; Professor Larry A. Braskamp, Professor Emeritus at the Department of Leadership, Foundation and Counseling Psychology, Loyola University Chicago, and Senior Scientist at The Gallup Organization where he conducts the Global Perspectives Inventory; and recent UW graduate Catherine Skroch, who presently lives in Morocco. A podcast will also be available after the program.

Tune in!

Here on Earth is supported in part by UW-Madison’s Division of International Studies.
