2014-15 “Preparing Students for the Global Workplace” Webinar Series

This is a series  promoting the connection of the humanities (language, culture, and area studies) to professional schools/career academies.  The goal of the webinars is to share ideas and resources,  and connect participants to other professionals seeking innovative ways of preparing students to be globally competent citizens able to choose from multiple career paths.

In each webinar session, we  hope to  engage participants and learn  how the NOBLE project can support in the classroom to prepare students for the 21st century global workplace.

The webinars take place monthly at 4:00 EST, and are free to the public.
