Reflective report on SL-2
  • SL2 training at the institutional level, most of speakers and participants found the sessions really useful and appreciated the organization and internalisation of the mandate of SL2.
  • A well-rounded global curriculum not only opens students' eyes but sets the stage for them to act in ways that are inspired by their course of study and driven by a desire to make a difference locally, regionally, and globally.
  • The skills required for successful participation in the world—such as responsible citizenship, innovative entrepreneurship, and active leadership, among others—are not specific to any one course or classroom. A globally focused curriculum and Higher education institution, fosters the development of these skills through mapping of skills, competencies and then aligning it back with the curriculum, deployment, and supportive ecosystem of learning outcomes.
