Today’s global challenges to healthy living demand both global and local solutions. It is therefore imperative to frame the learning experience of today’s students in a global context. Dr. Fischer focuses on pathways to educating globally literate students in Wisconsin’s public schools. He elaborates on current initiatives, which focus on advocacy, school partnerships for student exchanges, and project-based international learning, as well as the use of technology to facilitate interaction with students around the world.
