What is Global Competence in a student?

Ask anyone what young people need to be successful in an increasingly interdependent world, and the answers are likely to be all over the proverbial map. Educators and policymakers alike have recently focused considerable attention on math and science, but that is not the concern here. This article uses the term “global competence” to describe a body of knowledge about world regions, cultures, and global issues (regardless of discipline), and the skills and dispositions to engage responsibly and effectively in a global environment. There may be differences of emphasis; however, many educators agree that a globally competent student has: 

(1) Knowledge of and curiosity about the world’s history, geography, cultures, environmental and economic systems, and current international issues 

(2) Language and cross-cultural skills to communicate effectively with people from other countries, understand multiple perspectives, and use primary sources from around the globe 

(3) A commitment to ethical citizenship. To help students become globally competent, teachers must have the knowledge, skills, and dispositions described above, as well as:

  • Knowledge of the international dimensions of their subject matter and a range of global issues
  • Pedagogical skills to teach their students to analyze primary sources from around the world, appreciate multiple points of view, and recognize stereotyping
  • A commitment to assisting students to become responsible citizens both of the world and of their own communities.
