Learning to Listen: Listening to Learn
The International Association for the Promotion of Christian Higher Education (IAPCHE), in partnership with the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU), is pleased to announce an opportunity for scholars, faculty, staff leaders, campus administrators and others in North American Christian higher education to gather and consider how to improve the internationalizing of Christian higher education. At this conference, scheduled for June 4-6, 2017, the focus will be on listening and learning in order to enhance our leading. How do we engage in careful listening and learning across national and cultural boundaries? How do we shape graduates into culturally adept Christian witnesses who are prepared to serve God’s peace and justice in the larger world?
The educational goal is to create spaces and places where student voices shape institutional responses; where those of either limited or greater means learn from each other; where social justice is a language of strategy and action; where North Americans hear and learn with and from the larger world of Christian witness through higher education. The conference conveners expect that this gathering will provide an important context for learning to listen and listening to learn among all who participate.
