Faculty Module #1: Importance of Global Competence for CTE Programs

Today’s students will be graduating into a world that is ever more interconnected. One in ten Americans is foreign born, and local communities—urban, suburban, and rural—are growing more diverse. To take advantage of global market opportunities, companies want employees with the knowledge and skills to work across cultures. Therefore, faculty teaching in career and technical education (CTE) pathways need to prepare their students to compete, connect, and cooperate on an international scale in order to find jobs and move along a career trajectory. This module will establish a rationale for incorporating global competence in postsecondary CTE and introduces natural ways to make those connections.
