Global Learning and Binational Collaborative Models for the Knowledge Economy
This session looks at how transformations in global markets and new technologies are giving birth to binational learning models, and specifically, the collaboration of U.S. and Mexican institutions in creating new educational paradigms. Pima Community College (PCC) has been part of the growing economic interdependence and multidimensional integration between the U.S. and Mexico and has strengthened its relationship with local communities of Mexican origin and developed strong connections with Mexican institutions. Participants will discuss these binational collaborative efforts and discover ways to ensure successful outcomes, procure binational grants, and achieve cross-cultural learning and global solidarity in education on study abroad programs.
