"The Importance of Global Education in the 21st Century"

  • Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Minister of Education, Republic of Ghana - The Role of the Government in Global Education

In an increasingly interconnected world, global education is no longer an option but a necessity. Across the world, institutions of higher learning are providing opportunities for students to participate in international learning and training experiences abroad. These experiences are vital in preparing students to meet the challenges of an increasingly complex, competitive, and interconnected world.

Educational institutions around the world have transformed themselves in order to meet the growing demands of globalization. Universities have now become institutions designed for global exchanges and international collaborations.

The aim of most institutions of higher learning is to make education more relevant to the 21st century, a century in which students must gain a global experience and international perspective in order to explore the links and connections between the cultures of other countries and their own.

Government agencies and institutions of higher learning in Ghana must find ways to encourage students to become active global students, as this would equip young Ghanaians from all walks of life to succeed both at home and abroad.

This public lecture will explore the following key areas;

  • In what ways will global competency help students and employers engage effectively as members of a global community while also supporting them as individuals, local community members, and citizens of their country?
  • Are there economic, political, and social implications of this type of education and, if so, what are they?
  • How can the impact of global education be assessed on a national and international level?
  • How does global education prepare students for the ever-changing demands of a globally connected world?
