Check in with Global Teach Ag Intern Victoria Herr! #TeachAg #GLAG15


As students across campus begin making plans for the coming fall break, members of the Penn State Global Teach Ag! Initiative have already been gearing up for winter break and the special event that will take place just before the start of the spring semester. This event will be packed with educational and engaging opportunities related to global learning in agricultural that can all be enjoyed via internet in the comfort of your own home!

The 2016 Global Learning in Agriculture Conference, or GLAG, is slated to take place on Friday, January 8th, from 1-5 PM and is sure to get your new year off to a great start! 

The conference will include breakout sessions on the best practices for globalizing student learning, a vendor fair where you can virtually communicate with programs and businesses, and a poster session filled with great information. Plus, there will be a live keynote on global competence presented by Dr. Caitlin Haugen, an Education Program Specialist with the Peace Corps, and an ‘after party’ at the conclusion of the conference to ask Dr. Haugen questions and dig deeper into global learning! And of course, no conference would be complete without door prizes which will be awarded before, during, and after the event.

Attending the Global Learning in Agriculture Conference is so simple and is a great learning opportunity for current or future agricultural educators, vendors and stakeholders in global learning, and anyone who has an interest in increasing their global competency! The registration fee for GLAG is just $30 and the limited spots are filling quickly!
