Global Learning Fest

May 17th - 30th, 2021

Designed to be Accessible to All

Join the community this May for Study Abroad Association’s Global Learning Fest, as we celebrate: global education, global understanding and global connections.
We’ve crafted a calendar of self-paced 360° experiences that coincide with live streaming events and an active online community group. Each day participants can explore the 360° Global Learning Experiences in various areas of study, as well as joining in on live streaming events with the local guides featured in the 360° GLE and other inspiring guest speakers from around the world.
Additionally, throughout the week we’ll have events and activities taking place through our online community group that include: Travel Trivia, Cooking Classes, Themed Discussions, Live Events, Faculty Development Workshops and more!
The Global Learning Fest is all about community! Invite your students, faculty and community to join in and engage with the online groups. Everyone will have the opportunity to have open discussions with the other participants and local experts from around the world, while exploring the ultimate global educational tool: 360° Global Learning Experiences.
