Transformative Project-based, Integrative Global Learning x STEM

What does it mean to be a global polytechnic?  How do you instill a sense of critical global citizenship across students whose training is focused on science, technology, engineering, and math?   Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has leveraged project-based learning for student transformation over the last five decades.  Over the last ten years, project-based learning at WPI has been increasingly global, taking place in globally-focused local community organizations and place-based projects around the world.  In this session, we share our journey mapping for students through their WPI experience, highlight an ethical, community-engaged global learning framework that is a feature and mandate of the WPI curriculum, and connect our integrative experience across issues of equity, inclusion, and justice.
