Learning will involve (1) examining engagement as pedagogy and practice, and why it is seen as central to the study and future practice of global development; (2) reviewing principles of engagement and development practice, considering how they align and differ; (3) exploring multicultural competencies and how past experiences influence our perspectives of others and others' perspectives of us; (4) practicing reflection as a way of discerning insights; and (5) articulating a personal approach to engagement as a guide to engaged and experiential learning across the global development major and other learning opportunities going forward.
