Global competencies are the knowledge, skills, and dispositions used to understand our world and
act to make a difference for the issues of our time.
When students practice global competencies, they embrace cultural differences and can
empathize with multiple perspectives.
Globally competent individuals work collaboratively to solve problems, innovate,
and recognize the influences individuals and culture have on each other.
In the InterEd program, we adhere to these four competencies (CCSSO, Asia Society).
The four competencies are:
Investigate the World
- Globally competent students are aware, curious, and interested in learning about the world and how it works.
- Globally competent students recognize that they have a particular perspective and that others may or may not share it.
- Globally competent students can effectively communicate, verbally and non-verbally, with diverse audiences.
- Globally competent students have the skills and knowledge to not just learn about the world, but also to make a difference in the world.
21st Century Learning?
While there are many 21st century skills, the four most common ones are the 4 C’s: critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration. The 4 C’s help students develop important cognitive skills and interpersonal skills that transfer across content and tasks and are necessary for success in college, career, and life.
- The set of skills used to analyze data to form a judgment such as observation, analysis, interpretation, reflection, evaluation, and decision-making.
- The ability to generate new ideas or solutions of value. These can be solutions to problems, inventions, or an artistic endeavor.
- The ability to effectively share one’s own thinking or ideas with others and understand others.
- The complex set of inter- and intra-personal skills used when individuals work together in service of a shared goal. These include self-regulation, relationship building, goal setting, progress monitoring, and feedback.
